A team of soldiers and police yesterday (July 12) arrested two suspects and seized a cache of firearms, ammunition and incendiary devices.

Officers first raided a house in Rassada around 6pm. Officers arrested 52 year old Phuket man, Sanakorn. Police seized various kinds of firearms, ammunition and incendiary devices in his home.

The arrest, and subsequent information from Sanakorn, led officers to raid another house in Rassada where firearms and ammunition were being stored. In that case, officers arrested 51 year old Phuket man Weera and seized various kinds of firearms and ammunition at his residence too.

They were both taken to the Phuket City Police Station for questioning.

Sanakorn told police some of the items belong to his soldier friend(s) who asked if they could store the items in his house, while Weera told police that he is a sports shooter and has collected many kinds of firearms.

Sanakorn has been charged with illegal possession of firearms and ammunition and illegal possession of incendiary devices. Weera has been charged with illegal possession of firearms and ammunition.
