Rescuers check the recovered body of the drug dealer at Chalong today

Reggae Loving Phuket Drug Dealer Found Floating Dead Near Pier

Friday, December 25, 2015
PHUKET: A Phuket drug dealing business is literally dead in the water - which is where they found the body of a reggae-loving drug seller today.

Somkid Pakdeesowan, 31, appeared to have eluded a police checkpoint in Chalong when he fled into the sea off the pier and couldn't be found.

His escape, however, proved far from perfect.

Locals found a body, dressed in a reggae top, floating near Chalong Pier about 10am today.

The distinctive dreadlocks and bangles of the Songkhla man revealed his identity before police had a name.

As for his guilt, police found 40 ya bah methamphetamine pills and a small amount of ya ice on the dead man - and more than 5000 more ya bah pills on dry land.
