Cops confused by drug-free vision of youth | Thaiger

PHUKET: A group of Bangkok teenagers were so scared by an apparition they claim they saw in an abandoned house that police officers thought they were on drugs.

But when the results of urine tests came in, all four 13-year-olds turned out to have nothing in their systems – leaving the cops scratching their heads.

On February 16, Bukkhalo Police Station in Thonburi received a report that a group of teenagers were screaming for help outside a house.

At the gate of the old building, they found three girls and one boy, all aged 13, crying and claiming they had seen a ghost in the house.

The group told the police the house had formerly been rented by one of their aunts but was now empty.

They had decided to spend a night in the old place, climbing through an open window at 11pm.

Things went without incident until about 3am.

At that point, the teenagers claim, a ghost appeared in front of them. It was a man wearing a red loincloth. His face appeared to be rotten.

They fled the house in hysterics. Some neighbors heard the clamor and called the police.

At first, the police officers did not believe the kids’ story. They noted that they were “inappropriately dressed” and appeared to be on drugs.

The officers took all four to the station, where they tested their urine. None of the samples turned the tell-tale purple color indicating drug use.

The officers told the children firmly that they had to tell the truth about what had happened, saying that if they lied they could be sent to a young offenders’ institute.

All four stuck firmly to their story – that they had seen and been terrified by a ghost.
