On the morning of October 30th, Thai police officers arrested 43-year-old Sanya Sae-Ui with 5-kilogram of dry cannabis in his possession. The drug’s street value is estimated at 85,000 baht.
Earlier, Sanya is alleged to have been harassing and trying to sell weed to foreign tourists on Pattaya’s famous Walking Street. Officers used foreigners to try to purchase 10 kilograms of the drug, offering 140,000 baht through the Line application.
In the hotel room, where the transaction was due to take place, police hid in the bathroom and arrested Sanya in possession of half of the cannabis originally ordered. Sanya has been arrested for gun and pirated goods offences before.
