Sattahip police have arrested a woman suspected of being the source of a major ring of drug dealers selling to area students.
Janthanee Saibunla, 28, was apprehended in a sting operation Oct. 12. Police seized 5g of crystal methamphetamines, 12,500 baht and a motorbike.
The capture followed the arrest of an alleged minor drug dealer, pub singer Wanchalerm Khraikhruan, 30. Police convinced Wanchalerm to set up the buy from Janthanee at which she was arrested.
Police surround Janthanee Saibunla after an allegedly successful sting operation.
Sattahip Mayor Phawat Lertmukda said Janthanee’s arrest, along with four suspected subordinates, has put a major dent in a drug ring believed to be rooted in Rayong prison where the gang’s leader is imprisoned.
