A Nongprue motorbike taxi driver was arrested for allegedly dealing methamphetamines, but told police the drugs they found in his Banglamung apartment belonged to his wife.

Amphan Kaewbutdee, 27, is accused of selling ya ba from the back of his motorbike and stockpiling pills in his home. Police found 40 pills under a table, but Amphan told police his wife was the dealer.

The suspect’s wife dropped to her knees and “wai’d” her husband, begging him to tell the truth, saying if she went to jail, no one would properly care for their daughter.

Amphan then confessed, police said, claiming he worked for a larger dealer, reselling each pill for a 25-50 percent profit.
