A Lamphun man was arrested on Wednesday morning when Army troops found 13 marijuana plants growing in his house, apparently for his own use.

Acting on a tip-off, troops from the Lamphun peacekeeping command raided the house of Passakorn Sarawidakul, 42, in Ban Tha Thung Luang in Tambon Tha Thung Luang of Lamphun’s Mae Tha district.

The marijuana plants were found growing beside the house and on a balcony.

They seized marijuana weighing about 2.500 kilograms. A bong, or smoking pipe, was also seized.
