Station chief and Region 5 chief Pol Col Chanin Wachirapaneekun had ordered an investigation into the mail room on 29th March, said Thai Rath.

But as that was being carried out a metal cabinet was found forced open in Room 302 on the third floor on Thursday. 

A police captain reported that eleven guns had gone missing – one Taurus, eight Smith and Wesson and 2 Sig Sauers.

There is no CCTV in the room. 

Thai Rath said that sources suggested it was an inside job and mentioned that one former officer at the station is being sought in connection with the matter.
