American expat and Thai wife arrested in Pattaya on drugs and weapon charges

An American expat and his Thai wife have been arrested in Pattaya after being found in possession of nearly 1kg of crystal meth, a pistol and 200 bullets.

On Saturday, police said they arrested Bart Allen Helmus, 39, and Sirinapa Wisit, 30, at a condominium in Bang Lamung.

Police said they had the pair under surveillance after receiving reports they had been selling crystal meth throughout Pattaya.

The arrests came after an undercover officer posed as a customer who arranged to buy 10 grams of crystal meth from the couple.

It was then that officers swooped and seized 978 grams of crystal meth, a pistol, 200 bullets and 205,500 baht in cash.

The couple have been charged with drug possession and unauthorised possession of a firearm.

Helmus has already confessed to dealing the drugs, which he said he bought on the Dark Web.

The couple remain in custody.
