Singaporean nabbed on 7 June after undercover operation

The Singaporean, identified as Yao Yuheng, was arrested last Friday (7 June) in Pattaya, reported Thailand’s Khaosod English news outlet.

Police officers from the Narcotics Suppression Bureau (NSB) had set up an operation at the abandoned Major Hollywood department store in Bangkok.

They had reportedly gone undercover as buyers.

This included 90 pots of a new drug named “Pod K”.

It was made up of e-cigarette liquid mixed with drugs, including methamphetamine and ketamine.

Pod K can be consumed via inhalation, much like how one would inhale an e-cigarette.

Photos shared by Khaosod showed police officers displaying the items seized with a photocopy of what appeared to be a Singapore pink identity card.
