Woman arrested with large amount of Methamphetamines


In Thai culture, a Kuman Thong is a child ghost that is believed to bring people good fortune and make their wishes come true. Many people have figurines of the ghost at home, to whom they ask for blessings.

In exchange for having their wishes fulfilled by a Kuman Thong, people are expected to a red drink, sweets, or toys to the statue as a symbol of thanks.

However, certain individuals seem to have deduced that their Kuman Thong statues have grown tired of these offerings and would appreciate drugs instead.

Here’s the story of a Thai woman in Buri Ram who was arrested with a large amount of Methamphetamines that she claimed were for her Kuman Thong.

Confess the truth & admit your guilty

One lesson that we learned from this story is that if we do something wrong, we should confess the truth and accept the consequences.
