PHUKET: A man wanted for speeding through the main police checkpoint onto the island and escaping capture by police last month has been arrested while trying to smuggle more than 18,000 methamphetamine (ya bah) pills hidden inside his car into Phuket.

 

Siripong Leeprasit of the Phuket Provincial Narcotics Control Management Center, a provincial-level anti-narcotics task force, told The Phuket News yesterday (Nov 19) that the arrest came last Friday (Nov 15), when Tha Chatchai Police arrested Phuket native Wanchalerm ‘Jay’ Buaboon, 32, with 18,190 ya bah pills hidden inside his Toyota Vios.

 

Wanchalerm was stopped at the checkpoint at about 2:30pm last Friday (Nov 15) after officers recognised that his silver Toyota Vios matched the description of the car that sped through the checkpoint from Phang Nga to Phuket on Oct 15, Mr Siripong said.

So, he escapes once and then tries again with the same wheels. That is the very definition of idiot.

A guy speeds through the main police checkpoint onto an island, and him and his vehicle aren't picked up for a month.... as they leave?

1 baht / pill ?
I'd rather keep them and go selling on another island for 200

 

The driver is not really an entrepreneur
