Two nabbed with B8m of payung wood

Two men were arrested early Sunday while delivering blocks of payung or Siamese rosewood taken from Phu Chong Na Yoi National Park in Nachaluay district of Ubon Ratchathani province.

Acting on a tip-off, police led by Pol Col Suthi Sethawong lay in wait at Ban Khum Saen Chani in tambon Phon Sawan and found two men - Jirasak Srisai, 36, and Songkran Intha, 27, both of tambon Nachaluay - delivering 189 blocks of payung wood, each 80cm long and worth about eight million bah.

The police arrested the two and seized the wood, a ploughing machine and pickup truck used in the theft.
