Nicked For Drugs On Phangan

Recommended Posts

A friend of a friend is sitting in jail in Phangan at the moment after he was caught with small amounts of weed and a few E's. Police have told him he will have to go to court in 2 weeks and offered to let him out of jail in the mean time (minus his passport) for 100,000 baht. This sounds a little high to me. What is the likey outcome? Fine? Jail time?

What a fool your friend is..... me thinks he should just pay the money, can't imagine wanting to spend 5 minutes in the jail yet alone risking spending an extended time in there over a few baht.

Perhaps he will think again about his drug habbit in asia :o

pritty goofy comment "neverdie"..................Ya the kid got shafted he could have got the whole thing dropped if he'd given the arresting officier 20,000 on the spot. Now he should pay the money and slip to malaysia. If he's smart he'll split.....their comming down hard on E the pot is no big deal :D

sounds like a very high bail, if its minus the passport. best to get your friend a lawyer. court appearance following deportation is the most likely outcome.

Note: Friend of a friend. None of my friends are dumb enough to get caught :o

Is it likely that he faces jail time for a few E's?

I'll second MSingh.  Any negotiations for that much "bail money" should include passport, otherwise get a lawyer.

If he pays and does not get his passport then it is not "negotiations for release", its bail. Any under the table negotiations would include the passport. So, in all likelihood, given that he is already sitting in jail and most likely been processed, its probably too late for such negotiations.

unforgiven

Ya the kid got shafted

pretty goofy comment "unforgiven".

the "kid" pretty much shafted himself, nobody shafted him at all. he brought it all on himself.

it serves no purpose to say that it serves him right , but .... it serves him right.

I agree with SBK. Is too late to get the passport back. That money is only to get out jail an IMO is just a kind of extortion money. Get a (trusty) lawyer to get out jail and wait for bail. Usually people pay some 30/50.000 to get out waiting for Samui bail.

I agree, caught with E is more serious that with grass only... This is not Europe :o

Good luck for your unprovided friend!

Poor guy. Can't really say too much, but "negotiation" is the best thing. Get somebody to help you who knows how things work over there.

As for you guys who say is serves him right, don't you remember when you were young?

This sounds right. I would add that

If you pay bail then you get a receipt. The receipt in the persons name who payed the bail is then used to collect the money after the court appearance and verdict. It can take a few days to to get it back and comes back as a cash cheque (in my experience) though it's only payable to the cops as cash. Don't know what happens when you're on the receipt and get deported.
