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.

At the jungle hut, however, the officers seized 3,030 meth pills in total, all branded “WY”, in a variety of sealed blue bags. The officers noted that the meth pills varied in colour, comprising 1,400 orange pills, 1,600 red pills and 30 green pills.

They also seized a standard Royal Thai Army .22-calibre rile and 25 rounds of ammunition.

Police are continuing their hunt for Mahmut.


* UPDATE: The suspect fled before police arrived and was not apprehended, as originally reported. The error in reporting is deeply regretted.

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!

How do you know they are undercover Police? It's not stated in the article. The rifle could also have been stolen. Don't know why some people bother to continue write silly 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.
