Five Cambodian were arrested for threatening to kill their captain if he didn’t return to port so they could buy drugs.
They were charged with use of methamphetamines, illegally entering the kingdom and using a weapon to threaten bodily harm.
Samae San Moo 1 village chief Banjerd Janted said he was informed by the captain of the Phitak Mongkol that the crewmen had tried to kill him because they wanted to return to shore to buy drugs. The captain obliged, but called authorities once they tied up.
