Thongchai was offering to make customers fake Thai ID cards for 5,000 baht, fake Thai drivers’ licences for 4,000 and bogus migrant cards for 3,000 baht. 

The cops pounced at his room in Ramkhamhaeng in Bangkok after investigating the “Ku Do Kung” site on Facebook. 

They found a mountain of evidence – nearly 1,000 items in all – including 170 fake Thai ID cards, migrant cards, driving licences, Department of Land Transport stamps, fake annual tax return forms, a computer and copying equipment. 

And there was also a quantity of crystal meth and drug taking equipment. 

The cops said they investigated after Thongchai was named in 13 warrants and discovered he was mixed up in forgery and the drug trade. 

The suspect admitted his involvement. He said his customers were mostly young people who wanted fake ID to get into clubs.
