Visitors to Pattaya who saw Muan Bunman in the street might have thought that she looked innocent and sweet. However, this 80-year-old grandmother was actually the ringleader of a marijuana ring.

A report in the Pattaya Mail has revealed that Muan Bunman and her gang had been selling drugs from a grocery shop in the Nong Yai neighbourhood of Pattaya.

The Pattaya police raided the grocery shop last week, arresting Muan Bunman and eight others and seizing more than two kilos of dried marijuana, including 100 bags marked for sale. Although Muan Bunman has previously been in jail for selling drugs, she has been out for the last two years.

Police penetrated the drug ring after being notified by an informant. They used the informant to buy drugs from the gang using a marked 100 baht note and were quick to make the arrest, taking the gang and their drugs to Banglamung Police Station.

Muan Bunman quickly confessed to her and part in the drug ring, incriminating others along with her. She has been charged with possession and distribution of Class 5 narcotics.
