A Thai woman returning from a casino in Poipet was arrested by Sa Kaew police on Monday morning after authorities found a small amount of ketamine on her.
Thamolwan Yodlek, 25, appeared pale and nervous as she crossed the Aranyaprathet border checkpoint. Female rangers searched her body and found 0.612 grams of ketamine in a zip bag in her handbag.
She was taken to the 1201st Ranger Company for questioning. She said she had bought the drug in Cambodia to use it at a casino but had not ingested it.
She was transferred to the Klong Luek police station for further legal action.
