Pattaya police arrested 11 people on drugs, weapons and robbery charges in a week-long crime sweep.
Police chief Pol. Col. Apichai Kroppech announced the arrests and seizure of guns and bullets at a March 20 news conference.
Nine suspects were taken into custody for the illegal weapons with 29 bullets.
Suchart Ninsaguen, 35, was arrested for possession of 585 methamphetamine tablets and 80 grams of crystal meth.
Finally, transvestite Wilas Wongsuwan, 27, was captured and charged with snatching a gold chain worth 20,000 baht on Soi 7.
The arrest of the Buri Ram native resulted from working CCTV cameras. It was not Wilas’ first arrest for stealing jewelry.
Apichai said police planned to lean on the drug and weapons suspect to find their suppliers.
