A policeman was shot during the search of a building in Sukhumvit Soi 56 for evidence before officers made the grisly discovery.

Six body parts, including a severed head, were found stashed in black plastic bags inside a locked two-metre-high freezer on the ground floor of the five-storey, six-unit building in Phra Khanong district yesterday afternoon. Police were sickened when they opened the bags as they combed the premises for evidence.

Before discovering the body, police detained a British national, two Americans and two Myanmar nationals in the raid during which Pol Sgt Maj Kanchanapong Chedej was wounded in a shootout.

The detainees were not yet identified and immigration authorities were working to confirm their identities.

A nine-man police team comprising uniformed and plainclothes officers arrived at the premise with a search warrant. They received a tip-off that the building was used by a drug trafficking and passport forgery ring.

One of the suspects told police the passports were kept in a safe. Once he opened the safe the suspect reached for a gun inside and fired at Sgt Maj Kanchanapong three times.

Sgt Maj Kanchanapong, who is attached to the Tourism Police, was not seriously injured.

Three guns were confiscated – two semi-automatic and one revolver. Amounts of marijuana, ya ice (crystal methamphetamine) and passports were also seized.

While the police were searching the premises for evidence, they discovered the dismembered body in the freezer.

The body was initially identified as a foreign man with brown hair. The body was cut up into six parts with the clothes and the shoes still on.

Metropolitan Police Commissioner Lt Gen Sanit Mahathavorn, Metropolitan Police Division 5 Commander Maj Gen Somprasong Yenthuam, Tourism Police Commander Maj Gen Surachet Hakpa and Phra Khanong Police Superintendent Col Chanin Wachirapaneekul rushed to the scene.

Gen Sanit said police found equipment believed to have been used to dismember the body.

The city police chief said the two detained Myanmar nationals are husband and wife who were hired as housekeepers. They were not suspects, he said.

He said police questioned the couple and learned the suspects had stayed there for about three months. They paid the couple to clean the building two or three times a week.

Gen Sanit said the Myanmar couple saw the freezer on their first day but they never looked inside because it was always locked.

The city police chief said police found no explosives or war weapons at the premises and urged the public to stay calm while officials investigated.

He said US authorities were interested in the case and would join the investigation.

so much for good guys in and bad guys out. its very frequent now that foreigners come to our Kingdom with the sole intent to carry out crimes. 2 americans and 1 british or irish this week and the previous week, 3 australians attacking a thai (obviously they didnt have the balls to fight man to man) - we need to keep a stricter and much more efficient screening system regardless of what effect that might have on the influx of so called "tourists".
