A combined police-military team searched a house in Saphan Sung district of Bangkok and cut down a large number of krathom plants, of which the leaves are categorised as a type of narcotic drug, on Tuesday afternoon. 

The authorities, with a warrant issued by the Min Buri Court, searched the house in Sammakorn housing estate in Soi Ramkhamhaeng 110 in Saphan Sung district on information that a large number of krathom trees had been grown on the land and in the house owned by Prom Jaeng-im, 64.

The krathom leaves had reportedly been supplied to producers of a narcotic mixture known as 4x100, which is popular with teenagers.
