Government and military authorities raided three Huay Yai locations and seized thousands of liters of illegal liquor.
Banglamung District, Chonburi Excise Department Chonburi Suppression Center and 14th Military Circle officials found 19 containers hidden at a Huay Yai building. The 2,280 liters were 70 percent alcohol by volume and are used in herbal-spiced drinks. Building owner Pairin Plaikaew, 54, was arrested.
Next up was the private home of Rampan Huayai where 11 containers with 1,100 liters of alcohol were found.
