Doesnt he know that drug dealing is an occupation reserved for Thais? Sent from my GT-N7100 using Thaivisa Connect Thailand mobile app

Good point. The article doesn't say anything about him informing on Thai's that he sold to - just the farang. smile.png

Farang is not mentioned in the article, only tourists. And with many Japanese and Chinese tourists as well in that area, his customer base could be for a big part non-farang.

Exactly. yet the only one it appears he has informed on, was the farang. smile.png

What a surprise another "Farangs are being victimized" post...rolleyes.gif

There are hundreds of small time Thai drug dealers arrested every day. If it doesn't mention him ratting out them out is because 1. Phuket Gazette is a publication aimed at Farangs. 2. No one cares.

A better way to put it would be that drug dealing under impunity is an occupation reserved for the powerful.

I distrust people who would "volunteer" to be police. A police officer should be a well paid, well trained and thoroughly tested professional, honest beyond all doubt. In America, many poorly funded police departments have volunteer or low paid "auxiliary" units, and in many cases they have made more trouble for their departments than they are worth.

What was he thinking? He'll have lots of time to ponder that question.

The phone is most probably kept as evidence for the information it contains. I'd put that one down to the quality of Phuket's News "writing" rather than the BIB.

That is terrible a person in a position of trust that should be looked up to.

I wonder why they mention 'Samsung Galaxy phone and other drug related equipment' in one sentence?

Phones are often used for drug trafficking transactions.

The cell phone logs are valuable tools, as well as phone company records, that can support charges of trafficking. The news article is not unusual in the world of drug bust news reporting in that it mentions a phone.

These days, the phone is part of the "drug related equipment". Sad but true.

Wow...something has gone down hill big time in this guys life. I knew him quite well, but not had contact for couple years now.

He was a great guy, really great.

I am shocked. The PG says he spoke reasonable thai, he spoke excellent thai and had lived here for more than 30 years. I know he has a lot of connections quite high up, I wonder what will come of this.

Interesting comment left on another site about Garry the pretend policeman.

Leige Ludlow : "Good! This guy with involved in extorting 60 000 baht from me not even a month ago. He is as corrupt as they come..." sad.png

PS: Of course, innocent until proven guilty.
