NAKHON PHANOM: Police have found big bags containing 123 kilogrammes of compressed marijuana at a resort hotel in Tha Uthen district of his northeastern province. The guests believed to have who brought them have fled.
Tha Uthen district chief Phumsak Khampoo said on Saturday that local residents alerted authorities after seeing a few men check in at the hotel on Friday night with suspicious bags. They subsequently left but then returned to the hotel several times. Authorities did not reveal their names.
When authorities reached the hotel, the suspects had already left. Three big black bags containing 123 bars of marijuana, weighing one kilogramme each, were found in their room. Police estimated the value at about 2 million baht.
