Anti-narcotic officers led by Phuket City Police’s Maj Rittichai Chumchuy moved in and arrested Apisek Sukmars at a motorbike repair shop in Soi Mali 9, off Thepprathan Rd, at 3:30pm on Thursday (Sept 29).

Apisek was found in possession of several bags containing a total of 823.65g of crystal meth, two handguns – a Colt 45 and a 9mm FN military-grade service pistol – and 40 bullets. Police also seized drug paraphernalia and digital scales in the raid.

Maj Rittichai said the arrested followed undercover officers monitoring Apisek’s activities after they had learned that he was using his motorbike shop, where Apisek also lived, as a front for selling drugs.

“We searched suspect’s shop and found several bags of ya ice and guns in the bedroom,” he explained.

In Apisek’s statement presented by police, he said that that he recently bought one kilogram of crystal meth from a man who he contacted by phone to place his “order”.

The man delivered the drugs to Apisek near the Nimit Circle in Phuket Town 10 days ago, he said, though Apsiek claimed he did not know the man’s name.

Apisek also told police that he bought the two guns via Facebook six months ago. He paid B62,000 for the Colt 45 and B53,000 for the FN pistol.

Apisak was taken to Phuket City Police Station and charged with possession of a Category 1 drug with intent to sell and illegal possession of firearms and ammunition.

Wow, is now facebook the bad boy?
Can we buy guns in Facebook with delivery at home in Thailand? 
That sounds not so  pleasant!
But we are not surprised. Are we?
With 40 bullets we have some to 'handle', yes?
