Police say they have arrested five people, including two minors, who allegedly stole assault rifles from a police base in Nakhon Si Thammarat province.

According to police, the five suspects broke into the arsenal of a Border Patrol Police command center in Thung Song district, stole the weapons, and sold them in the black market to buy narcotics.

Two of the suspects are 16, and the rest are 19, 33, and 40, said said Pol.Maj.Gen. Kiattipong Khaosam-ang, commander of the police force in the region.

One of the teenagers is the son of a police officer stationed in the base, he said.
