The superintendent of the Watthana Nakhon Police Station says a 34 year old identified as Ekaphon was found in possession of the four plants. He was charged with theft and police have seized his vehicle.

The 27 year old homeowner, identified as Sirilak, who owned the plants, says the plants were stole a few days ago shortly after midnight.
