Nakhon Si Thammarat –

An intoxicated man was arrested with two guns, bullets, and twenty methamphetamine pills near a school to allegedly snatch his child after an argument with his wife.

The Central Investigation Bureau Police Region 5 in Nakhon Si Thammarat reported today (October 7th) that they were notified that Mr. Teerapong, who was intoxicated, was heading to a school to snatch his seven-year-old child in the Ron Phibun district after he had an argument with his wife.

The shocking incident came only one day after a horrific mass shooting at a daycare center in Nong Bua Lampu.

The Central Investigation Bureau Region 5 Police, who were nearby doing volunteer activities in the Khwan Phang sub-district, rushed to the scene. They had been on high alert due to the incident in Nong Bua Lampu.

Law enforcement arrived at the scene near the school to find the suspect’s pickup truck with Teerapong inside. The officers tried to arrest Teerapong and have him surrender peacefully but he refused to cooperate. Teerapong crashed into a police officers car trying to drive away but failed to escape.

Teerapong emerged from his pickup truck and according to law enforcement appeared to try to take out a handgun from his waist. Police tackled Teerapong and managed to detain him. Two guns, bullets, and 17 methamphetamine pills were found with the suspect. He was taken to the Ron Phibun Police station for further legal action.

Locals nearby said they heard about four gunshots before police arrived but luckily there were no injuries.
