PRACHIN BURI - Forestry officials seized phayung worth 2 million baht on Saturday at a World Heritage site in Nakhon Ratchasima province. 

Officials of Tap Lan National Park, acting on a tip that a truck was smuggling Siamese rosewood in Khon Buri district, set up a  roadside checkpoint on a route out of the park.

Seeing the checkpoint ahead, the driver abandoned the six-wheel truck and took his keys with him, leaving behind eight logs hidden under the truck's floor, said Tewin Meesap, the park chief.
