Banglamung sting operation catches suspected long-time drug dealer


Banglamung undercover police arrested a suspected long-time drug dealer after catching him selling crystal methamphetamines Feb. 1.

Anand Jankesorn, 31, was taken into custody at the intersection of sois Nemplabwan and Map Yai Lia 29 around 4 p.m. while allegedly delivering a gram of ya ice to an undercover officer. Police and Banglamung Permanent Secretary Pongsit Pitjanan swept in once money was exchanged.

A subsequent search of Anand’s apartment turned up 4.5 additional grams of crystal meth.

Anand admitted to dealing ya ice for a long time and gave up the name of his supplier, who he said he met in prison. Police said he told them most of his customers were area youths.
