Police on Thursday seized a large haul of marijuana with a street value of 50 million baht and arrested a Lao woman and a Thai man in a sting operation in Ubon Ratchathani. 

Police identified the Thai suspect as Srisuwan Tangjai, 48, a native of Ubon Ratchathani. His 36-year-old accomplice from the southern Lao province of Champasak is known only as Pan. 

The pair were apprehended after they delivered a combined total of almost 2,500 kg of compressed cannabis, bars of hashish and powdered marijuana in two long-tailed boats across the Mekong River from Laos to an undercover police officer who posed as a buyer on a Thai bank in tambon None Somboon of Det Udom district early in the morning.
