Siripong Leeprasit, a senior official from Thalang District Office led his team and civil defence volunteers to arrest Ms Wasinee Isolbusor, 24, and Ms Jutharat Jitnaree, 18, at Wasinee’s home next to a klong in Soi Mak Prok Anusorn in Moo 1 Mai Khao.

The two were found to be in possession of 1.25 litres of kratom juice, one unregistered .38 mm Smith & Wesson pistol, 15 .38mm bullets, 41 .45mm bullets, 857 bundle of fresh kratom leaves weighing a total of 43.3 kilos, 62 bottles of cough syrup and other items.

Mr Siripong explained: “The arrests came after we received a tip-off from undercover officers that the suspects were selling drugs to teenagers from a hut next to the klong in the soi next to the Mak Prok branch of 7Eleven. We were told that the suspects stocked a lot of fresh kratom leaves at the hut.

“When we arrived at the hut we saw four teenagers in the area pouring kratom juice into a container, but they ran off when they saw us. Officers chased them but they got away,” he said.
