Two alleged drug dealers were arrested with a shoulder bag full of marijuana.

Sinrath Phathasri, 29, and Somprasong Chansaard, 30, were taken into custody Aug. 26 by officers patrolling near the intersection of Thappraya Road and Soi Marine Plaza who believed the duo were driving suspiciously.

Searching the men, police found fifteen 15-gram packs of marijuana. Police claim the suspects confessed to planning on selling each pack, for which they paid 80 baht, to tourists for 500 baht each.

Both men were charged with possession and intent to sell a Class 5 narcotic.
