A suspected drug dealer who tried to flee after spotting a Banglamung Police checkpoint crashed his motorbike and ended up recovering in a jail cell.
Niwat Suda, 20, was arrested after police found 14 methamphetamine tablets in his pocket following the Wednesday accident near Soi Nernplubwan and Soi 2. A pillion passenger identified only as “Pae” escaped.
Police said 28 officers were staffing the checkpoint when Niwat and Pae approached. They suddenly turned and tried to escape, but smashed into a garbage can.
