Two Bangkok citizens were arrested on gun trafficking charges as they were allegedly selling firearms through the social media site known as Facebook. One of the men made the weapons as the other sold them. They seem to have made a great team until they got caught.
The two suspects, Withaya Chai-Auari, 32, and Suriya Khoksombat, 25, were arrested in Bangkok yesterday.
An undercover police officer posing as a customer contacted Mr Withaya on the internet to buy weapons. Mr Withaya turned up for the meeting with the guns in Phahon Yothin Soi 55 and was immediately arrested, police said.
Police later searched his apartment in Bang Khen district and found a large quantity of firearms including a homemade Thai Pradit gun, a pen gun, two grenades and more than 100 rounds of ammunition.
Mr Withaya said he was the salesman, selling on Facebook weapons made by Mr Suriya, police said.
