PHUKET:-- Five men and one woman were arrested yesterday (Aug 22) with over 300 kilos of fresh kratom after two of the suspects were stopped at Tha Chatchai checkpoint the previous night.


At 11:30pm yesterday, Thalang officials led by Thalang District Deputy, Danai Jaikhang; local district Administration Officer (Palad), Siripong Leeprasit, narcotic control officers, territorial defence volunteers and Khok Kloi police arrested six people who were found to be in possession of a total of 326 kilos of kratom leaves at the Baiyang Resort in Khok Kloi, Phang Nga.


Officials also seized from the six eight mobile phones.


The arrests came after Thalang district defence officials and Tha Chatchai police on Sunday night (Aug 21) stopped a vehicle at the Tha Chatchai checkpoint due to its driver and passenger acting suspiciously.


Upon checking the vehicle nothing untoward was found. However, police decided to take the two men back to the station for questioning.
