A team of officers led by Thalang Police Chief Lt Col Theerawat Liamsuwan raided a hut amid jungle in Moo 9 Pa Khlok, at 5pm.

The raid aimed to apprehend Mahmut “Adisak” Hormwan, who is wanted on three separate arrest warrants issued by the Phuket Provincial Court, specifically warrants 418/2557, 989/2558 and 561/2559.

However, he is believed to have fled the scene before the officers arrived and escaped arrest.

It's pretty obvious they are plain clothes cops by the images, whether rifle is stolen or not is pointless, yes I really don't know why you keep spouting your nonsense!

Great article. Look forward to read more about that army rifle.
Some army personal  must have sold it from the 'barracks'.

And a nice photo of 5 undercover police officers who blow their undercover publicly by being eager to get photographed.
Bit by bit we know all the Phuket undercover police officers by face.
