SONGKHLA - A Malaysian woman was arrested at the southern border and charged with smuggling 98 kilogrammes of kratom leaves into Thailand. 

Customs authorities arrested Adila binte Tioma after she refused to stop her Thailand-bound car for a full check at the border in Sadao district, and sped off from the checkpoint. Authorities chased the Proton with the registration plate, PDU 382, until the driver lost control and hit a tree about seven kilometres from the Thai-Malaysian border.
