Acting on a tip-off, officers from the Phuket Provincial Police placed the house, in Soi Thungkha 9, one of the backstreets on the west side of Yaowarat Rd near Samkong, under surveillance on Friday (Oct 26).

When one of the suspects exited the house, the police began to move in. On seeing the officers, the suspect ran back inside the house, prompting the officers to move in and execute the raid.

Of the seven people arrested, police named only Preukgarn Sornkaew, 28, of Ao Leuk, Krabi.

Police also reported 26 items of evidence sized, including computers.
