Investigators said Nanthawut confessed to purchasing drugs from a dealer identified only as “Sak,” a Chonburi prison inmate he met while serving his own drug sentence there. Once he got out, Nanthawut said, he went back into business, this time ordering his supply from Sak via telephone and picking it up in a secluded area on the prison’s perimeter.

Police claim Vasana works for Nanthawut as both a drug user and small-time distributor.
