Drug dealer’s assets seized by Office of Narcotics Control Board

A drug dealer associated with the notorious and now deceased General Lao Li’s drugs ring in Chiang Mai had his assets seized last Wednesday by police acting with Office of Narcotics Control Board officials. Last Tuesday, police arrested suspected gang members associated with Suradet Saehow, 38, a Chinese Haw from Chiang Mai, and charged them with possession of 20,000 Ya Ba pills. During questioning, Suradet was implicated as a major figure in the gang. However, he became aware that his name had been put forward, and, leaving his wife and 2 children, fled the area. Police ascertained later that he seemed to have no legal occupation, but had amassed property and personal belongings beyond his apparent means and was living an expensive lifestyle. He had also been seen associating with other members of the Chinese Haw drugs gang.
