Dozens of tourists test positive for drugs at Samui pub raid
A raid by 50 soldiers and police at a well known Chaweng pub on Koh Samui netted almost three dozen tourists who had been taking drugs.
Out of about 100 patrons tested 32 returned the tell-tale purple urine test.
The pub – that was not named – was raided at 3am and found to be operating after hours and with a license that had run out last December. The man looking after the premises – Itthichai Chunparicha, 40, was arrested.
Some 14 shisha pipes, that are illegal in Thailand, were taken into evidence. Neither the fate of the tourists or what drugs they had been taking was reported in the Daily News story
