When officials ran their names through the biometrics system Martire from Italy and Mohammadi from the Netherlands traveled into Thailand on 13 February 2020. Both tourists have overstayed their Visa so officials were sent to inspect the hotel right away. When officials arrived the sound was coming from room C11. Officials entered the room and Martire was inside with 2 Thai women. The group was having a drug party. The room was searched and Cocaine was found hidden in random spots in the room. Matire claims that he purchased the drugs from a taxi driver at the Parkbara Pier.
Officials then entered room B11 and found Mohammadi. The room was searched and marijuana was found. Mohammadi claims that the drugs were purchased from Koh Lee Peh Island. Both tourists were arrested and delivered to the La Knu Police Station for prosecution. Matire and Monhammadi have overstayed in Thailand, instead of keeping quiet and staying safe during the Covid-19 situation they both decided to have a drug-fueled party with Thai girls. Not only are they risking their own lives but employees at the hotel were also afraid of the virus. Both suspects were loud and damaged hotel goods, an inconvenience for other customers and the employees.
