Immigration Police chief Lt-General Sompong Chingduang on Tuesday announced the arrest of [name removed] a New Zealand national, on charges of opening a restaurant and bar without a licence, working without a work permit, and allegedly possessing narcotic substances.

 

[The man] was arrested at the Spades Bistro & Bar on Sam Lan Road in Chiang Mai’s Muang district.

 

Sompong said local police were called to inspect the bar “allegedly owned by an illegal alien”.

 

“We questioned [the man] and found that he entered Thailand on July 11 on a retirement visa. He is listed as a shareholder of the company which opened this bar, but has no licence under his name,” Sompong said.

 

While searching the second floor of the bar, police said they found drugs including 64 ecstasy pills, 9 grammes of cocaine and another 9 grammes of ketamine, which [the man] allegedly admitted buying from a foreign dealer for

Bt45,000. An initial urine test also revealed that [the man] had narcotics in his system, according to police.

 

[The man] was subsequently taken to Chiang Mai police station for prosecution.

At least this man did a good job. He saw to that he was breaking the law in 3 different ways, so that he was sure to get caught sooner than later.

Interesting, are Martians now visiting Earth? I wonder if a TM30 was completed.
