Cop's son arrested on drugs

KHON KAEN :The son of a border patrol police officer and four other men have been arrested on drug charges and had almost 24,000 speed pills seized from them in Khon Kaen.

Thanaphat Paravech, 27, a teacher hired on a temporary contract at a school in Ubon Ratchathani's Na Tan district, and his four alleged accomplices were caught after police gave chase and fired shots at their pickup truck's tyres on the Khon Kaen-Chiang Yuen road in Muang district of Khon Kaen on Sunday.

The four others were identified as Prasarn Saengdaeng, Samran Saengdaeng, Rangsi Chuekhamchan and Thepnapa Natvej. Police say they seized 23,900 speed pills and six mobile phones from them.

Mr Thanaphat is the son of a border patrol police officer, Khon Kaen police chief Pol Maj Gen Chob Khisalang said.

The suspects allegedly received drugs from a network run jointly by a woman known as "Jae Pen" of Ubon Ratchathani's Khemarat district and a Lao woman known as Ms Oon.

Son of ex-politician caught with yaba

A son of a former politician was arrested on Thursday for allegedly selling methamphetamine pills in Khon Kaen province, police said.

The suspect was named as Phuwa Sripanya, aged 29. He is the son of former Bhumjaithai Party MP Panya Sripanya.

Pol Sen Sgt Maj Somporn Thanasisangkul was on a patrol in Khon Kaen's Muang district when he spotted Mr Phuwa acting suspiciously in his car. When the officer approached Mr Phuwa, he refused to talk and drove away to a gas station nearby.

The officer followed him, searched his car and found 600 speed pills and one gramme of crystal methamphetamine with an estimated street value of about 200,000 baht.


Mr Phuwa allegedly confessed that he received the drugs from a drug courier and planned to deliver them to a client who was waiting near an ATM booth in front of the provincial adminitrative court on Thursday night.

Another? What can be concluded from that? :uhm

Can people in positions of power not support their families anymore? Or did the customs in those positions of power lead to another "powerful" social structure?
