Sattahip Mayor Phawat Lertmukda said authorities were tipped off to Chatchai by another drug suspect. An undercover informant arranged to buy three tablets for 250 baht each. Once money was exchanged, however, Chatchai spotted the police and ran.
The suspect said he needed cash to buy milk for a newborn baby.
Sattahip and Royal Thai Navy officials captured Chatchai Udomzup (seated) for allegedly selling ya ba.
