Phuket police with apparently very little to do busted a Russian man and his Thai girlfriend for possession of very minor amounts of meth and grass.

Neither suspect in the early Sunday arrests was named, but the Russian was caught with 2.8 grams of marijuana and his bong, while the woman was caught with less than a gram of crystal methamphetamine and two speed pills.

The arrests were made by Phuket provincial drug officers aided by civil-defense volunteers who apparently followed the woman back to her house in Rawai and then waited for the Russian man to return.

They were each charged with drug possession; her for Category 1 narcotics, him for Category 5.
