    Machine gun seized in Phuket meth raid

    Pornthep “Tung” Sombun, 22, with the assortment of firearms found in a house by Phuket police during a drugs raid today.

    PHUKET: Police conducting drug raids on three houses in Mai Khao, at the northern tip of Phuket, today seized a slew of guns, including a .45 Thompson submachine gun.

    Armed with search warrants, officers from Tah Chat Chai Police Station first searched the home of 38-year-old Chaicharn Kao-ian, where they found 60 ya bah (methamphetamine) pills hidden in his washing machine.

    Chaicharn later confessed to police that the drugs belonged to him and that he sold them to local youngsters, said police.

    Samruad “Wew” Jansida, 35, and Warakij “Don” Pannurak, 18, were also arrested in the house after their urine tested positive in a spot test for drugs.

    The two confessed they had taken drugs, police said.

    The officers then raided the home of Pornthep “Tung” Sombun, 22, where they found a variety of illegal guns hidden throughout the house.

    Police seized a .45 Thompson submachine gun along with 47 bullets and a magazine loaded with 30 bullets as well as a rifle (with no registration number), a shotgun, a Steven Air rifle and a Smith & Wesson .38 handgun with 48 bullets – plus two bullets still in the chamber.

    Police also seized one pack of ya ice (crystal methamphetamine) weighing 0.156 grams.

    Pornthep told police that the crystal meth and the air rifle belonged to him, but that the handgun and the shotgun belonged to his older brother, who is currently serving a jail sentence at Phuket Prison.

    He also explained that although he was found in possession of the Thompson submachine gun, he did not actually own it.

    A man wanted to borrow 30,000 baht and left the classic war weapon with Pornthep as collateral. The gun was to be returned when the man repaid the debt, he said.

    The last raid of the day, at a house in Sakoo, resulted in the arrest of Chatri Chaidham, 35.

    Police conducted another spot test for drugs, for which Chatri tested positive and he confessed to owning drug-taking paraphernalia found in the home.

    Also arrested at the house were Prasert Makaseng, 28, and a man named by police only as “Abdullah”, age 23.

    The men were found in possession of 40 leaves of kratom (Mitragyna speciosa), an indigenous plant that acts as a stimulant when ingested.

    They confessed to police that the kratom belonged to them, said police.

    “Police are continuing their efforts to eradicate drugs and war weapons. People can anonymously inform police of any activities involving drugs at any time. Every police officer is ready to work hard throughout the New Year to protect against bad things from happening,” Tah Chat Chai Police Superintendent Col Sakchai Limcharoen said.

    Wish the police would do something about the dirty white trash in the house next door to where i live in the UK!! but they just turn a blind eye to drugs in the UK that's why i like Thailand even though it is as corrupted they take a stronger approach to drugs.

    ^^I have a Thompson exactly like that. Almost perfect condition except I need a sling swivel and a rear sight - and probably a new magazine spring. I have been able to document mine as to date and place of manufacture, etc, through the serial numbers. Would that I could legally get it back to the US. Worth practically nothing here, maybe 2/3 thousand $; ten times that, at least, to a collector in the US.

    Thompson sub-machine gun otherwise known as the Chicago Piano. A great favourite of the Mob during and after Al Capone,s time.

    Once you hear it fired you will never mistake it for any other type of machine gun. I fired one years ago it was a captured weapon from an IRA stockpile we found.
    Deadly at close range with a normal magazine fitted, very prone to stoppages when fitted with the wind up drum magazine. THE gun has stood the test of time and there are many collectors who would like the one in the picture.

    I thought you might...

    2 questions please, Davies:

    1) What is your favourite gun in your collection and why?

    2) What gun would you most like to add to your collection and why?

    ^1. Mossberg 12 gauge pump shotgun. Because they don't get up.

    2. Ruger .44 magnum 'Alaskan'. Because it shoots cannonballs and I don't have one.

    They didn,t do very well at Pearl Harbour!!!

    I have to disagree with Davis on his Mossberg Shotgun!!! My preference is the Remington Wingmaster 870 and you are right they definitely don,t get up.....

    Good choice, but for home defense I'd prefer a Winchester Defender with 00. Wish I could own one here.

    I had to look this up on wiki, about the plant. I thought this was quite funny. Only a Thai would have the sense to do this.

    "The Thai government passed the Kratom Act 2486 which went into effect on August 3, 1943. This law makes planting the tree illegal and requires existing trees to be cut down. This law was not found effective, since the tree is indigenous to the country"
