The navy's Mekong River operations unit late on Saturday night seized 420 kilograms of compressed dried marijuana - worth up to 12 million baht - which was left on the bank of the river in Muang district of Nakhon Phanom province.
Capt Surasak Suwankesa, commander of the unit, said the marijuana was found on the river bank near Ban Cha-ngom in tambon Dong Khwang. The drug was stuffed into 12 fish meal sacks with Vietnamese letters on them.
