The chief of Prawet police is facing a temporary transfer pending a probe into missing marijuana seized as evidence late last month.

An order was issued by the Metropolitan Police Division (MPD) 4 shifting Pol Col Thongchai Wilaiprom to an inactive post at the division for 30 days while a probe into the "lost" marijuana is under way.

A total of 76 kilogrammes of compressed marijuana was taken away as evidence during a raid led by Pol Maj Gen Surachet Hakpan, chief of Patrol and Special Operation Division, in Soi Kanchanaphisek 18 in the Saphan Sung area at the end of last month.
