PHUKET: The arrest of one drug user in Patong yesterday morning allowed police to make an appointment with five other druggies later in the day.

Acting on the orders of Phuket’s top cop to arrest anyone suspected of drug use, officers in Patong approached Komsak Tongsin, 21, in front of a SuperCheap store on Phrabaramee Road because he “looked suspicious”.

Police found Mr Komsak in possession of five ya bah (methamphetamine) pills.
