Cops caught for possessing drugs

Four policemen were dismissed for allegedly possessing more than 350,000 methamphetamine pills and about five kilogrammes of crystal, Metropolitan Police Bureau chief Winai Thongsong said Wednesday.

Pol Lt Gen Winai said the four police officers, all from the Narcotics Suppression Bureau, confiscated yaba and ice yesterday, but they did not take legal action against the drug suspects nor report to their superiors.

He said the police will set up a disciplinary committee to investigate the four officers who have been charged with corruption and negligence of duty.

The four officers are Pol Lt Cherngchob Ratchakom, Pol Sen Sgt Maj Somsak Thiprasameewongse, Pol Sgt Maj Pattara Vorachanan and Pol Cpl Noppadol Phan-aree.

A man was also detained for allegedly being involved with the four officers, the city police chief said.

The police know who the drug suspects are and will carry out an investigation to arrest them, he added.
Anyone who goes to a psychiatrist should have his head examined.

Police get life for theft of seized drugs

Police get life for theft of seized drugs

The Min Buri Court on Thursday sentenced four policemen to death for stealing seized drugs in 2012.

The sentence was commuted to life because they cooperated and gave useful information during their trial.

The four police officers - Pol Lt Choengchob Ratchakhom, Pol Sr Sgt Maj Somsak Thiprassami, Pol Sgt Maj Patara Vorachanant and Pol Cpl Noppadol Phan-aree - were members of the Bangkok Metropolitan Police Division 3's drug suppression task force. They were arrested, along with Chawalit Kamnerdkhonkaen, a civilian, by narcotics suppression police on March 19, 2012.

The court was told the four policemen had that day detained a number of drug dealers in possession of 300,000 methamphetamine pills and 4kg of crystal methamphetamine. They let them go without taking action against them.

Instead, they took the drugs and hid them in a car. The car was parked in the parking lot of the Metropolitan Police Division 3 headquarters. Mr Chawalit, the civilian, was suspected of being involved.

The court dropped charges against Mr Chawalit because there were reasons to believe he knew nothing about the theft.

However, the court ordered he remain in detention, pending a possible appeal by the prosecution.
