HIV Czech Cuffed In Phuket

Phuket police arrested the HIV infected Czech man wanted on an Interpol Red Notice for allegedly infecting others with the virus in his homeland on Tuesday night following a tip-off from a member of the public.

Zdenek Pfeifer, 49, was arrested at the Silaa apartment building in Choeng Thale around 7pm on Tuesday evening, less than 12 hours after an appeal by Thai police to the public for help in locating the deviant.

Pfeifer was spotted by a member of the public in a branch of Tesco Lotus who recognised hm from Thai news reports broadcast earlier in the day.

The unidentified man confronted the Czech who made excuses to staff and police in a bid to evade justice when they attempted to apprehend the fugitive.

After fleeing the supermarket on a motorbike, Pfeifer arrived at his rented room to find officers waiting on him after the landlady had informed cops the man she’d seen on TV that afternoon was a tenant of hers.

Pfeifer attempted to lie his way out of the situation by telling cops he was Italian, however, his story was soon swept aside down at the station when his fingerprints were compared to the wanted mans details.

The Czech was swiftly transferred to Bangkok where he is now being held pending legal proceedings to extradite him back to the Czech Republic.

Breaking Bad Thailand Edition

A chemical engineer who turned to producing Ecstacy pills and crystal meth at his condo in Nonthaburi was arrested this morning by officers from the Narcotics Suppression Bureau.

The Saturday morning raid on a building in Bang Kruai District, Nonthaburi was led by Police General Manu Makemok, Deputy Commissioner General, Royal Thai Police and Police Lieutenant General Montree Yimyaem, commissioner of the Narcotics Suppression Bureau.

Inside the apartment, the prime suspect, 42-year-old suspect Patiwet “Heisenberg” Suwankiri was apprehended.

Drug production equipment and chemical precursors were seized along with 20,000 Ecstacy tablets and 50 grams of crystal meth.

Police General Manu said that the Narcotics Suppression Bureau got a tip that there was a group of pill producers who sold E tablets to entertainment venues in Bangkok.

A surveillance operation was set up and pinpointed Prayoon Thapinna as the dealer. He was taken in for questioning and soon after he folded like a deckchair telling cops who “Heisenberg” was.

During questioning “Heisenberg” was evasive saying he sold the drugs to tourists and that he imported the chemical precursors from online dealers.

Police dismissed both explanations as tourism in Thailand is virtually non-existent due to Covid-19 and the chemicals and tools needed to produce the E and meth have been on a banned list for many years.

He did admit to producing the drugs in his apartment saying he used the knowledge from when he studied chemical engineering

Investigators are working to find more people involved in the operation as the set-up was capable of producing around 3,000 tablets per day.
