An Issan painter was arrested for allegedly dealing drugs in Bang Saray.
Sutthawat Harnrat, 37, was captured by Sattahip District Chief Phawat Lertmukda and National Command Center for Drugs officers in a sting operation June 27. Officers recovered eight methamphetamine tablets and a 1,000 baht note.
The arrest stemmed from the earlier capture of Chokchai Bunthuam, 34, for the purchase of two ya ba tablets. Authorities convinced Chokchai to help them nab his dealer in an undercover buy.
Sutthawat Harnrat was captured by Sattahip police after injuring himself jumping off a 2-meter wall.
Sutthawat, a painter from Udon Thani, discovered the plot before officers sprung, however, and fled out a window and across four roofs before he was injured jumping a 2-meter-tall wall.
