Marijuana across the Mekong – 350 kilograms seized

A routine naval patrol has foiled an attempt to smuggle 350 kilograms of marijuana across the Mekong into Nakhon Phanom from Laos last night (Tuesday).

Rear Admiral Pisit Thongdeelert, commander of the Mekong Protection Unit for Nakhon Phanom, said a patrol vessel spotted a boat approaching the bank in Ban Na Nong Book in Tambon Chaiyaburi of Tha Uthen district.

Four men on the boat then carried seven bags ashore. When the patrol boat approached them to make an arrest, the four sped off in the boat. The patrol found 350 bars of marijuana in the seven bags, each bar weighing about 1kg.
