Police from the Narcotics Suppression Bureau and Provincial Police Bureau 1 raided and arrested Supachai Kaewchaimee at a house in Lop Buri and charged him with drug trafficking and money laundering.
Supachai denied both charges and claimed that the money circulating in his accounts came from online trading in consumer goods.
Police alleged that Supachai bought drugs from another suspect, Pongsakorn Srisuang to distribute in Lop Buri. Pongsakorn was arrested last year but jumped bail after the court granted his temporary release.
On Tuesday, police arrested Supachai’s girlfriend, Pratthana Lararom, at a department store in Lop Buri on a charge of abusing ketamine.
In coordinated operations Wednesday morning, police from the Narcotics Suppression Bureau searched three spots in Bangkok, 23 spots in Saraburi, seven spots in Lop Buri, three spots in Ayutthaya, one spot in Nonthaburi, one in Pathum Thani, one in Chaiyaphum, and another in Nakhon Ratchasima.
