Two near naked men arrested for drug smuggling in Chiang Rai

Two men nearly naked have been arrested after they were caught transporting drugs in Chiang Rai last night, Dec. 11.

The vehicle the men were driving was intercepted by a Royal Thai Army border patrol in Wiang Hom village, Tambon Mae Sai, Amphoe Mae Sai who were in the area looking for drug runners.

Unlike numerous previous incidents of late, the two men did not put any resistance.

A search of the vehicle found around 100,000 yaba tablets.

The near-naked man, named as Mr. Ekachai Thanuno, 42 from Mae Chan and his friend, who was unnamed, were both arrested but only after first posing for pointing pictures first.
