Wow, good job army and police.  That is 27 and that goes into 8810 326 times.  It is a small step up of from the over 70's bridge syndicate busted up in Pattaya a few years back.

Barely penny ante for the whiskey drinking, 100 decibel, Colorado Thai Ladies Poker Social we would have at our house in Fort Collins.  Of course, us guys were in a room down the hall attending the THC, Thai Husbands Club, over good wine and stimulating conversation.  Miss those guys...

The police and soldiers in Australia are unelected.

Does that make them all thugs as well?

Hey colleague, how much money did you confiscated? 

 

About 200k THB

 

Ok, good, let's report that we found 8810 THB. That's a nice number for today's bust. :ph34r:
