At 9pm, on the evening of July 7, a Pattaya Police Patrol spotted a white Toyota Altis pulling over in Thepprasit Road, at the center for drug trading in the town. Officers watched as the passenger opened the window and threw out a snack bag. Despite appearing as a regular litter drop alert officers noticed the bag was sealed with transparent tape and so investigated.
Inside, they found two bags of Ice weighing approximately two-hundred grams. Cops observed the car heading towards Sukhumvit Road and alerted other officers to create a road block. The Toyota was caught at the red lights of Thepprasit and Sukhumvit.
The driver, a thirty-four year old Nigerian, Ukwiani Ogochukwu, was with his Thai girlfriend, thirty-one year-old Samorn Sutthakaew, who was holding their one-year old baby. They have denied drug possession but have failed to convince officers and so are being charged with drug possession & distribution.
They were taken to Pattaya Police Station for further interrogation as officers look to expand the investigation in an attempt to locate their fellow dealers or buyers, Pattayaone.net reports.
