Two Thais and two foreigners were arrested last night (Jan 8, 2020) for illegally crossing into the Thai district of Mae Sod from Myanmar.
Acting on a tip-off, Mae Sod police and Tak immigration officers stopped a pick-up truck as it was passing by a corn plantation in Mae Konkainmai Village.
The Thai driver and his female companion along with a Malaysian and a Singaporean citizen were sent to Mae Sod Hospital, and all four were not found with Covid-19. They were later sent to the Immigration Office in Tak for legal action.
The four people had crossed into Myanmar to observe the construction of a casino.
