(15 November) A noodle vendor in Sattahip district of Chonburi province has been arrested for selling amphetamines inside her takeaway food package.
Ms. Somphon Plangklang is a longtime drug dealer who has previously been arrested for narcotics charges on three occasions, police officers said.
Known among local drug buyers as ?300 Baht Noodle?, Ms. Somphon would charge the drug buyers 100 baht for one bag of noodle and extra 200 baht for the amphetamines, concealed inside the noodle bags in order to avoid police detection.
However, she failed to identify undercover officers who ordered her goods in a sting operation.
Ms. Somphon confessed and explained her motives for the crime, stating that she needs to raise a fund to pay back the underground loan she had previously borrowed to pay for her bail money.
