Thai media has reported that a British man has been caught with methamphetamine and guns after scaring locals by firing a weapon out at sea. 

 

Koh Samui police and immigration officers were waiting for Benjamin S., 34, when he and a Thai friend called Kirati, 22, returned to shore at Ang Thong sub-district of the holiday island.

 

A search of a hotel villa where the suspect was staying turned up a 9mm Beretta, a .38 revolver, 80 rounds of ammunition for the guns, 6.85 grams of "ice" , drug taking equipment and a pocket knife.

 

The British man admitted all this belonged to him.

 

Kirati said that he looked after a speedboat for the suspect. Kirati was found in possession of a 9mm gun he said was his father's and 15 rounds of ammunition. 

 

He said that Benjamin had taken drugs then they had gone out in the speedboat in the bay in front of the hotel where the Brit fired a weapon many times.

 

Koh Samui police chief Pol Col Pongkhajorn Sukkasang who led the arrest team said that the police had been called by locals who feared for their safety after hearing shots at sea. 

 

Benjamin has been charged with possession and dealing in a Class 1 narcotic, having unregistered weapons, having a weapon in public and using it. 

 

His Thai friend was just charged with having an illegal weapon and having it in public. 

 

Both are now being prosecuted by the police.

Looks like he managed a full English breakfast before he went out on the boat. 

I'd say he was keen on the 'Gutbuster-breakfast', everything times 3!😃

Saw a documentary on some Brit in Thai prison for drug importation. When he went in was a bit portly like this guy..explained that they get one bag of cooked rice and clear soup (Gaeng Jut) daily. He was quite slimmeddown after some years inside. At least he won't have to buy any expensive diet plans.

Few things seem to have changed in this from when I read it . It said he was on the beach firing it initially and the other guy arrested with him had an Italian type name , not some Thai boat driver.

The other hilarious detail missing seems to be he was a tourist and he decided to try crypto currency and became wealthy . This I find hilarious as he doesn’t look like he could tie his shoelaces and pretty sure if you were that smart to suddenly make a fortune in crypto that you wouldn’t decide to go out and get some meth and guns and ammo for a stay at a 5* hotel !! Suggest the police look further into his background , as I’m gonna say he’s not one of the good guys 🙈
