Pattaya, Laem Chabang and Chonburi police announced the arrest of an Iranian national who allegedly was manufacturing and distributing large amounts of crystal methamphetamines in Pattaya and Bangkok.
The apprehension of Ahmad Hassan Ghasghaei, 39, was announced June 12. He was captured in his Bangkok apartment with more than 61 grams of ya ice as well as meth-cooking ingredients and equipment. Clothes the suspect was wearing while under surveillance and his mobile phone were also seized.
Iranian Ahmad Hassan Ghasghaei has been arrested and charged with manufacturing and possession with intent to sell Class 1 narcotics as well as illegal import and export of narcotics.
Chonburi Deputy Commander Col. Theerapol Jindaluang said the arrest came after the small-time bust of Pantiwa Pangnok, who was in possession of 0.18 g. of ya ice. She told police she’d purchased the drugs from Ghasghaei and told police how to contact him. Undercover officers then set up a fake drug-buy to arrest the alleged dealer.
