A completely innocent member of the public is dead and two others were seriously injured after a drug sting conducted by the Bang Lamung police ended in disaster. 

 

The police had tried to arrest 40 year old drug dealer Thanongsak or "Kwang" who had arrived at the sting with his wife Supatra. 

 

But the dealer got wise and took off alone in his Mitsubishi Triton truck and was pursued through Pattaya by gun toting police. 

 

They shot out one of his back tires causing him to lose control near a clinic in the Moo 8 area of the city.

Careening into cars and motorcycles the Triton ended up smashed into a shop front and a motorcycle with sidecar used for selling meatballs. 

 

Thanongsak then fled on foot and was arrested along with 300 grams of drugs worth 500,000 baht. 

 

Dead at the scene was 66 year old motorcycle rider Prasert. His male relative riding pillion was injured. 

 

Further down the road another innocent motorcyclist was taken to hospital with a broken leg, reported Siam Chon News.

 

Nong Prue police were on the scene surveying the devastation as a large crowd gathered following the culmination of the chase around 7 pm yesterday evening.
