Two days previous, on Friday afternoon, police arrested another man, 38-year-old Akkawut Chinsri, with 0.66 grams of ya ice (crystal meth).

Akkawut told police about a planned drug deal that was to take place on Sunday afternoon at the PT Petrol Station in Baan Manik.

Officers acted on Akkawut’s information and waited at the petrol station at about 2pm on Sunday as Komsan Prateab Na Thalang turned up on a motorbike acting suspiciously.

Officers approached Komsan and asked to search him but he resisted, assaulted them and tried to escape.

They managed to apprehend him and found ya ice and ya bah pills (methamphetamine) in a storage container on his motorbike.

They then escorted him to his rented accommodation in Cherng Talay where they found 20,666 ya bah pills, 328 grams of ya ice, an M16 rifle, 27 rounds of M16 ammunition, a Smith & Wesson handgun, 50 rounds of .357 bullets, digital scales and packs of small resealable plastic bags.

Komsan tried to escape from the room but police managed to catch him.

He was charged at Cherng Talay Police Station with possession of ya bah and ya ice with intent to supply, possession of a firearm without a licence and assaulting a police officer.

All drugs dealers , convicted, should be banned for life from Phuket island.Perhaps that will be a useful signal to these thai 'merchandisers'?  Plus prison time including labour to make points for a years later release? This kind of people hate working. Make them work for food/drinks/care ...

''A'' firearm without a licence? Doesn't the second gun count as a firearm too?
