A military base in the deep south province of Narathiwat, discovered 28 AK-102 automatic rifles were missing.

The rifles were first noticed missing on May 18 from the 2nd Narathiwat Territorial Defence Company, located in tambon Kamphu. The next day Mayusor Kudae, the assistant chief, filed a complaint with local police against those whom he believed were responsible for the missing rifles. The Narathiwat chief reported the missing rifles yesterday, May 24.

Army commander Lt Gen Kriangkrai Sirak admitted the rifles were missing and said that an investigation is ongoing into the missing weapons.

“During a clash in Bacho district of Narathiwat on May 11 in which a suspected insurgent was killed, officers seized one AK-102 rifle. “An initial investigation found that it had not been used in any attacks, but the weapon was found to belong to a defence volunteer in Narathiwat.”

Narathiwat has been the site of some recent gun violence incidents. The missing weapons follows last week’s news when 2 insurgents were killed in a standoff with a Thai paramilitary force. Then 2 weeks prior, a suspected insurgent was shot and killed with rangers. Last month rangers killed one suspected insurgent and arrest 2 others, while 2 more suspected insurgents escaped.

A 29 year old man was arrested after he allegedly posed as a doctor to sell face masks and other items, but did not deliver the orders. Victims say they paid for products the man advertised such as shoes, camera, phones and skateboards, but never received the orders.

The man, identified as ‘Theerapon’, apparently would send a photo of himself dressed in scrubs at a Thai hospital as well as a copy of fake hospital ID. The Crime Suppression Divison say that multiple victims came forward to detail how they were scammed. The victims allege that they attempted to buy various items Theerapon was selling but often did not receive their items.

Theerapon was arrested in a parking lot in Samut Prakan, just southeast of Bangkok. Police say he admitted to running the scam for the past 10 years.

Another police station also had a warrant out for Theerapon’s arrest. A victim claims they purchased an iPad Air and an Apple Watch from Theerapon for 19,000 baht, but they never received the order.

62 men in Bangkok were arrested at a so-called “chemsex” party where gay and bisexual men are said to take drugs like methamphetamine to enhance sex. The men now are facing charges over violating the disease control measures which prohibit large gatherings, especially those where people are in “close contact.” Half of the them tested positive for drugs and will be charged, according to police.

Drugs, needles and used condoms were found at the Faros Sauna 2 in the Wang Thong Lang district, according to district police superintendent Ekapop Tanprayoon. The 2-building establishment has 50 bedrooms as well as a swimming pool and an area for karaoke… just in case you want to have a sing as well.

Partygoers and the organisers could face up to 2 years in prison and an up to 40,000 baht fine. Around 30 people tested positive for drugs. Ekapop say they will also face related charges.

With the number of Covid-19 cases still on the rise, especially in Bangkok, the epicentre of the latest wave of infections, Ekapop says there shouldn’t be so many people in such a crowded area. The president of the LGBTQ+ advocacy group Bangkok Rainbow Organisation told Reuters reporters that the chemsex parties are worrying because of the risks of contracting either Covid-19 or HIV.
