PHUKET:: A series of co-ordinated raids at 23 locations across Krabi early yesterday morning (Feb 18) netted more than 200,000 methamphetamine pills (ya bah) and a slew of firearms, including three M16 rifles.

 

The operation, called Krabi Romyen, involved a total of 295 officials, Royal Thai Police Deputy Commissioner Pol Gen Chalermkiat Srivorakhan explained to the press at a conference held later yesterday.

 

The goal was to take down eight drug networks known to be operating in Nuea Khlong, Nong Thalay, Khlong Thom, Bo Thong, Khlong Khamoa, Plai Phraya and Ao Luek, Gen Chalermkiat explained.

How many M16s does the army lose per year?

Could be interesting if they compared serial numbers of "lost" M16s with the ones they just "found"

Yes, a check of the armory inventory records might be interesting, if such record keeping is allowed and maintained.  I have my doubts

a lot of m16's were smuggled around SEA after the vietnam war. a good chance the serial numbers were removed from black market guns. don't think they need to steal from their own armories. plenty on the black market already
