CHIANG MAI: -- Pharmaceutical experts and police raided a recently opened souvenir shop in Chiang Mai yesterday.

 

They had received reports that the "Time Cosmetic" store on Ratchiang Saen Road was selling illegal goods to tourists.

 

The raiding party found five varieties of medicine that can only be dispensed by a qualified pharmacist.

 

Several people were arrested including the manager.

 

A saleswoman called Supranee Sasithornbamrung, 24, said they had only been open a week.

 

She didn't know anything about it - her job was just to sell the stuff to the Chinese, she said.
