KRABI: An alleged Krabi "drug dealer" was shot dead last night after a police task force cornered him and he attempted to throw a grenade at the officers, the police say.

The suspect, who was the target of last night’s joint task force raid in Krabi Town, is named as Chanchaiyuth Krainara, 29. Police are reporting that Mr Chanchaiyuth was a "big-time drug dealer" in Krabi and Surat Thani provinces.

“Task force personnel assembled in front of the Panumas Apartments on Ruamjaichon Road in Krabi municipality around 9:30pm,” said Krabi Provincial Police Deputy Commander Boontawee Toraksa. “However, before officers engaged the suspect, we received a tip that he had a hand grenade or an explosive of some kind, so we closed the road to avoid endangering anyone else.”

Undercover officers posing as potential buyers attempted to surround and capture Mr Chanchaiyuth, who managed to escape and tried to break through the police blockade in a pick-up truck.

Tossing a grenade?  He must have be 'crashing his own stash' so to speak.  That's something I'd expect a 'tweaker' to do.

  He probably figured 'I'd rather go commando than be strip searched and probed!'
