Police received a tip-off from a local that there was someone in their area selling kratom leaves to teenagers, which they would then use to make the cocktail see koon loy (4x100).
See koon loy consists of four ingredients: cola, cough mixture, kratom (a mildly narcotic leaf) and ice.
At the house in Phuket Town police found Amnat Faijai, 19, Mr Sorn (believed to be a fake name), 17, and Mr Eakapot Sawaengha, 30, who were in possession of the kratom. All three were arrested.
