Narcotic Suppression Police officers have raided a one-year-old factory-warehouse in Samut Prakan that allegedly manufactures cannabis tincture for export, deputy national police chief Pol General Chalermkiat Srivorakhan told a press conference on Thursday afternoon.

The raid in Bang Plee district netted 70 kilograms of cannabis tincture, six kilograms of hashish and some equipment.

The facility was reportedly backed for the most part by a Japanese investor and had reportedly succeeded in smuggling five tonnes of cannabis tincture to Belgium in March.

Police arrest 4 men linked to massive Thai cannabis export operation

Praphorn Praphornkul

BANGKOK, 7th December 2018 (NNT) – Thai police have arrested four men, including one British and a Canadian, suspected of exporting cannabis oil on an industrial scale. 

On Thursday, the Office of the Narcotics Control Board (ONCB) reported that the suspects were charged with multiple counts relating to the production, possession and sale of narcotics from their factory in Samut Prakan province for over a year. 

The authorities said they seized 70 kilograms of cannabis oil, 6.6 kilograms of the drug in resin form, and related tools worth over 444 million baht in total. 

They were accused of producing and exporting cannabis oil, which remains illegal under current drug laws, to several countries, including Belgium. They allegedly obtained the raw materials from drug rings in Thailand and Laos. 

The Deputy Commissioner-General of the Royal Thai Police, Pol. Gen. Chalermkiat Srivorakhan, said the ONCB had been tipped off about the group back in March 2018 and found their contraband hidden in shredded coconut shells shipping out of the Laem Chabang Port. Some of the shipments made it to Belgium. 

Pol. Gen. Chalermkiat said the group is believed to be headed by a Japanese investor. It is estimated to have exported over five metric tons of cannabis oil to Belgium, which might not be their sole destination. He said investigators are still unsure where else the group sent their products to, and whether more people were involved.
