A British man has been arrested and charged with dealing in heroin, a Class 1 narcotic. 

 

The 36 year old was also found to be in possession of morphine (Class 2) and marijuana (Class 5). 

 

A picture of the suspect with vehicle registration documents, keys and money was shown on the Naew Na site. 

 

They said that an immigration police detail led by Capt Therdsak Thawatworakunm along with the provincial and Koh Phangan police enacted the arrest on Saturday. 

 

It appeared to have taken place on Koh Phangan. 

 

Naew Na said that the arrest was ultimately under the orders of Lt-Gen Sompong Chingduang - the immigration chief - to clean up Thailand, make the country safe and stop damage to tourism being caused by foreign criminals.

 

They urged calls to 1178 to report people breaking the law.

Looks like a Thai Blue house book next to the passport, foreigners only have names in Yellow house books?

Do they take your house here if you are convicted?

it must take the thickest of thick people to believe you can deal drugs in Thailand and not be informed on for the price a can of beer or even for the colour of your skin come to think of it.

Correct. Around here I am the only white person and get stared at daily. This means that everyone in the village knows pretty quickly if I have bought a bottle of beer or taken the dogs for a walk. Going around trying to sell drugs would be absolutely moronic in the extreme.

Foreigners with Permanent Residency get a blue house book.
