Banglamung police raided a methamphetamine lab in a high-end residential development in Naklua, arresting two and seizing 545 ya ba tablets.

Abhisit Gayen, 19, of Chiang Rai and Bandit Khamwong, 24, of Wangchin Phrae were taken into custody Feb. 29 at the Regent Village on Naklua Soi 16 after neighbors smelled meth cooking and called police.

In addition to the tablets, police recovered 1.7 kg in uncut crystal methamphetamine, other ingredients and drug-producing equipment.

The two suspects said they worked for a man identified only as “Aek,” an inmate at Bangkhwang Central Prison in Bangkok and were to produce drugs and deliver to Ploy Sipanna, 39, at a rented house on Soi Nong Sadao.

Officers visited that house, smelled methamphetamines cooking and broke in to recover more evidence, including financial records of the drug-dealing gang. A further search of Abhisit’s apartment found additional cooking ingredients, three ya ba tablets and other evidence.

Police allege the four-person ring could produce 100,000 methamphetamine tablets with the equipment and supplies found at the two locations. An arrest warrant has been issued for Ploy.
