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.
