A YouTuber‘s home was raided by Thai police and a total of 87 guns were discovered.

Trinsak Wachirasrisirikul, the face behind the YouTube channel Tacticool BoB, found himself in hot waters when a Police Cyber Taskforce, in collaboration with local officers, uncovered a staggering cache of weapons during a house search in Mueang district.

The raid, orchestrated to fortify public safety as the yuletide season approaches, revealed a whopping 87 guns of various makes, accompanied by a stockpile of 4,576 rounds of ammunition and seven magazines. Police Major Nikhom Kheunopparat, chief of Phitsanulok police, disclosed the alarming find, reported Bangkok Post.

Displaying a court warrant, officers confronted 33 year old Trinsak about the extensive arsenal. Astonishingly, he claimed these firearms were inherited from his father, all legally registered under the paternal name. However, the police are now scrutinising the legality of the ownership transfer. Should there be no documented handover, Trinsak could find himself facing charges related to unauthorised possession of firearms and ammunition, cautioned Pol. Maj. Nikhom.

In related news, in a bid to quell the rising tide of shooting tragedies, Prime Minister Srettha Thavisin and Interior Minister Anutin Charnvirakul have issued a joint directive, temporarily halting the issuance of gun licences until December 19 next year. The move, effective on December 20, was officially announced by Traisulee Traisoranakul, deputy government spokesperson, who revealed that the directive had been published in the Royal Gazette on December 19.

In other news, the capture of Anawin, the suspected gunman in the cases of shooting Nong Yod and Teacher Jeab, took place in Chiang Mai. After a restful night and watching the sunrise atop the mountain, he was apprehended and flown back to the capital for further questioning. In the ongoing investigation of a crime gang allegedly responsible for the shootings, both victims tragically lost their lives on November 11. Police have been tracking the gunman who fled after committing the crime.
