Flying here from Tanzania can be a long and perhaps uncomfortable trip, especially if you happen to have 53 condoms full of cocaine in your digestive tract. Immigration police noticed that the man was walking in an uncomfortable manner and decided to screen him. All sat and waited to see what came out of his derriere and it turned out to be 53 cocaine sausages which weighed in at just under a KG. Habib, the only name given, faces a long jail term followed by deportation but for now, we are told, he expressed a feeling of relief.

Thailand news: Tanzanian drug

Drugs intended for the Australian market were intercepted in Nakhon si thammarat this week, seeing 7 Thais arrested and half a million meth pills, along with nearly 400kg of crystal meth seized. The drugs, en route to Malaysia before being shipped to Oz,  were seized from well known serious drug dealers caught at gas station forecourts.

Flash floods, heavy rain and mudslides are all part of a weather warning issued for much of Thailand through to the weekend at least. Caused by a cyclone that is now over India, the subsequent air movement has seen stormfronts form over much of this region and waves in the gulf at dangerously high levels for small to medium sized boats.

Police on Phuket were AGAIN searching for a 76 yr old lone female tourist who has gone missing. The German lady has been missing for three days, according to her hotel and previously went missing earlier this month, when she was found, alone on a beach. The German embassy has been informed and will, perhaps, initiate an evaluation of her health, once found.

Just after midnight police were called to a motorbike accident on Jomtien second road. There they found the 40 yr old chef form the popular Frankies Inn who had crashed into a telegraph pole, seeing him passing instantly. Yesterday saw police checking CCTV recordings to establish the cause, as Frankies announced an at least 2 day closure to enable staff to recover from their shock.

Police issue reports to anyone reporting a crime and for issues such as possible insurance claims, these are essential, BUT one 26 yr old Indian man claimed that his report wasn’t taken seriously when he stated that a lady of little virtue, who accompanied him to his room stole his thick gold necklace, SAID to be worth 45K baht, and fled while he took a shower. Police have taken FOUR reports from Indians in the past few weeks regarding theft of valuable goods and so, well the reminder is out that valuables should be worn whilst wandering the city and the best place for them is a safe.  No word on whether the necklace was insured but police were actively reviewing hotel CCTV yesterday.
