Actress and former Miss Teen Thailand Amelia “Amy” Jacobs and her boyfriend were arrested early on Tuesday morning in Bangkok on drug charges, police announced at a press conference.

Amelia, 28, and Poonyawat Hirantecha, 40, were arrested at a house in Sai Mai district at about 12.30am.

Police seized 70 grams of crystal methamphetamine, or “ice”, 16 ecstasy pills and a scale. 

Police said the couple had confessed that they had bought the drugs from a friend for Bt40,000 for 100 grams and then resold them for Bt800 per gram.

The couple said they had dealt drugs for about a year, police said.

Amelia allegedly was consuming drugs when police raided the house.

She claimed she had used drugs because of stress after a friend invited her to try the substances a year ago, according to police. 

She reportedly claimed that she had never personally bought drugs.
