PHUKET: A Phuket Marine Police officer is one of four men who were arrested trying to smuggle an estimated 385kg of kratom onto the island early yesterday morning (Sept 5).

 

 

Acting on a tip-off, a team of Phuket provincial anti-narcotics special operations officers and police at the Phuket Check Point in Tha Chatchai were on the lookout for a vehicle carrying a large amount of kratom into Phuket early yesterday morning when at about 4:30am they noticed a blue Bangkok-registered Toyota Camry parked nearby.

 

Officers approached the Camry and found Eakkasit “Pak” Srijarung, 40, and Rachen Tohla, 21, sitting inside, said a report of the arrests by Danai Jaikheng, Chief Administrative Officer (Palad) of Phuket’s Muang District.
