Briton arrested on Koh Phangan for selling illicit drugs

Thailand is Cambodia's neighbor to the West, and this forum is dedicated to Thai news, stories, reviews, blogs, videos, Thai people and anything else related to the country. A lot of expats have both lived and worked in Cambodia and Thailand, and this area is a place to discuss all aspects of life in Thailand and what's going on there. Most topics are about Bangkok and Pattaya because of their larger populations of expatriates and tourists in those cities, but this is for all things Thai.

SURAT THANI: A British national was arrested on Koh Phangan on Sunday with a variety of narcotics in possession to allegedly sell to tourists on the island.

Koh Phangan police chief Sathit Kongniem said Matthew Beresford, 36, was stopped for acting suspiciously when he saw police while riding his Harley Davidson motorcycle from Natalie Bungalow at 20 minutes past midnight.


A search of his room found 0.4 grammes of heroin, 0.2 grammes of MDMA, 51 grammes of morphine and 185 grammes of marijuana rubber, the police chief said.

The arrest followed a tip-off that a foreigner riding a Harley was planning to sell drugs to foreign tourists on the island.
