Following reports by villagers from Nong Pheung, Saraphi, police raided an abandoned land area near an underpass bridge on the third ring road, known as a place where men go to pick up other men.

This afternoon police raided the area, telling reporters that they found empty bottles of alcohol, used condoms and drugs paraphernalia.

Authorities then dug ditches on all five exits and entrances to the area, preventing vehicles from being able to park there in the future.

Police ask the public to avoid using this area for illegal purposes as it upsets the nearby villagers.
