Six curfew-breakers have been arrested for allegedly attacking a Pattaya shop owner and his family, as well as damage to their business and car, on Saturday night. The shop owner had refused to sell the perpetrators alcohol as it was after the curfew, with a further ban on alcohol sales after 6pm in Chon Buri province.

The Pattaya News reports that 6 Thai men are now in custody following the assault on Saturday night. They range in age from 14 – 33, and include 27 year old Tae Narktongin, along with Piya Nakam and Yuttana Kleabbua, both 33 years old. The identity of the other alleged attackers is being withheld as it is understood they are all under 18.

All six are accused of attacking Somkit Pumonna and his family after he refused to sell them alcohol, telling them they should go home as they were in violation of the national curfew. It’s understood his shop was closed at the time but as it is also the man’s home. He was on the premises with his wife, daughter and 2 grandchildren, when Tae and one of the younger boys arrived and asked to buy alcohol.

Reports say an argument broke out between the men and the shop owner, but from there on, there appears to be two sides to the story. Tae and the young boy claim the shop owner attacked first, saying he pulled a knife on Tae. The shop-keeper denies this, saying Tae and the young boy left, returning a short time later with 4 accomplices. He says they then proceeded to smash up his shop and car, with the family forced to spend the night elsewhere.

Police have launched an investigation and are reviewing CCTV footage of the incident in order to get at the truth. They say wounds on one of the suspect’s arms would indicate injury of some kind but can’t say at this time that he was attacked first as claimed.

All six face charges of violating the national curfew, which carries a penalty of up to 2 years’ imprisonment and/or a fine of up to 100,000 baht. They may face additional charges, pending the outcome of the police investigation.

The Royal Thai Navy is investigating 16 of its officials for alleged involvement in a drug trafficking operation earlier this month in the Isaan province Nong Khai which borders Laos. If the officials are found guilty, the Navy will immediately take both disciplinary and legal action, according to a spokesperson.

Local officials reportedly seized 2 million amphetamine tablets and 116 kilograms of methamphetamine from a suspect who allegedly smuggled the drugs across the Mekong River, which borders the province. The suspect allegedly fled the scene.

2 Navy officers took the drugs from local officials, saying they would secure the evidence and hold a press conference, which never happened, according to a complaint filed with the Anti-Corruption Police by the Crime Victims Assistance Club chairperson.

“About 20 minutes after the drug seizure, two men who claimed that they were officials from Navy’s Mekong Patrol Operation Command took the drugs from Nong Khai officials, saying that they would secure the evidence and later hold a press conference on the drug seizure… However, the press event was later cancelled.”

Police in Bangkok arrested 3 people for allegedly making cannabis cookies and selling them through the messaging application LINE under a chat group called “The Hippy Cookie.” Police raided a condominium room in the Bang Na district and seized 13 “foreign types” of cannabis, 46 food products made with cannabis and 3 types of hallucinogenic mushrooms.

Using the LINE messaging app, the suspects allegedly sold cannabis and cannabis food products. The suspects allegedly sent the cannabis to buyers using a food delivery service.

An investigator joined the chat group and posed as a buyer, ordering 5 grams of cannabis for 3,500 baht. When the cannabis was sent through the food delivery service, police asked the driver to return the package to the suspects. Police say a suspect came down to receive the returned package. Investigators then searched the suspect’s condominium room.

One of the female suspects allegedly told the police that she used to sell cookies (regular cookies), adding that she has an interest in cannabis. She then studied how to make cannabis cookies and contact cannabis suppliers in Thailand before starting the illegal business with her boyfriend and a friend. She allegedly told police she started the business a year ago and has more than 100 regular customers.

The suspects were charged with illegally processing and distributing narcotic drugs. Parts of the cannabis plant with high amounts of the psychoactive component tetrahydrocannabinol, such as the buds, are still classified in Thailand as a Category 5 narcotic.
