Violent crimes in Thailand are on the rise


Must read

Newly appointed Police General Damrongsak Kittiprafat told Thai media over the weekend that serious violent crimes of a brutal nature, often involving the use of firearms, are rising alarmingly in Thailand.

The proliferation of weapons draws the attention of the man known in the media as ​“Big Den”.

Big Den is especially concerned about how easy it is to buy weapons online, and in his capacity as head of the PCT – “Police Cyber ​​​​​​Taskforce” – he ordered raids from August 24 to 31.

The man who will take over as chief commander of the Royal Thai Police later this month and replace outgoing chief commander Suwat Chaengyodsuk said the brutal and violent incidents at a restaurant in Ubon Ratchathani and youth shootings and armed robbery were to support his claims that Thailand is becoming increasingly violent.

The raids seized 422 rifles and more than 6,000 ammunition and arrested hundreds of dealers and people who opened illegal accounts to receive money.

In addition, more than 6,000 Ya Ba pills and 400 grams of “Ice” (crystal meth) were seized, the Daily News reported.

He urged the Thai public to help RTP by calling PCT number 1441 to report technical crimes online.
