A British man has been arrested for allegedly selling cocaine to tourists on Walking Street.

Duncan James McGee, 54, was captured by Chonburi Immigration Police Aug. 19 after falling into a fake drug-deal trap sprung with the help of a foreign informant.

After exchanging 3,000 baht in marked bills for the drugs, the informant stepped aside and police arrested McGee who, surprised, allegedly tried to escape. On him, police found nine bags of cocaine.

Police said McGee confessed to purchasing the cocaine in Bangkok and making ends meet by reselling it to tourists in Pattaya. He was charged with possession and intent to sell a Class 2 narcotic.
