A Banglamung anti-drug office volunteer was arrested for allegedly dealing drugs.

Charan Aimthong, 37, a worker with the Office of Narcotics Control Board, was apprehended Aug. 21 outside the Ibis Hotel in North Pattaya after allegedly selling 13 methamphetamine tablets to undercover Pattaya Police officers.

Decked out in his Narcotics Control Board uniform, Charan was taken off his government motorbike and unceremoniously escorted to the Pattaya Police Station.

Pattaya Police Superintendent Col Nanthawut Suwanla-Ong said investigators had heard that insiders in the Banglamung District narcotics board had been using the cover of their official anti-drug office to disguise their drug promotion business.

With a simple phone call and 3,750 baht, officers caught the alleged inside dealer.
