On the night of the 2nd March officials at Srilanna National Park in Phrao District, along with border patrol soldiers and other government officials made five arrests while patrolling the forests.

The five men were arrested for illegal hunting and were found with BB guns, lighters, knives, and drugs (yaba and heroin) in their possession.

The arrests came after the governor of Chiang Mai ordered officials to step up forest patrols in an effort to prevent forest fires.
