Police have arrested two men, one a teenager, travelling on a motorbike after they were found to be carrying 23 small homemade bombs and a gun and ammunition early Wednesday morning.

Krisda Sae Phu, 27 and an 18-year-old  identified only as Bank were stopped by Bang Khen police about 1.30am while riding a motorcycle on Phahon Yothin 52 soi, according to information posted on the policespokesman facebook page.

Police found 23 small homemade bombs, one .38 handgun, 38 bullets, a knife and a knuckle duster in their possession.

The police charged them with carrying weapons and ammunition in the public without a good reason and violating the Internal Security Act.

23 small homemade bombs on a motorbike, sound very small. We're they deadly or noise makers? Can't be too important if only made a Facebook page... Perhaps more to come after interrogation

I suspect there will be a cover up. Most Thais dont have much faith in the police. Why announce it on Facebook? Bizarre.

"Carrying weapons and ammunition in the public without a good reason" Carrying weapons with a GOOD reason however is perfectly legal.

"Carrying weapons and ammunition in the public without a good reason", Bombs, guns, bullets, knuckledusters and knives. You need a good reason ? This was a very good catch, but a very bad sign for what could be in store.

I thought an 18 year old was legally an adult, so why withhold his name?

It would be interesting to know, on behalf of whom did they “work”?

The introduction of martial law was effective immediately. Now I hope that it also has an effect on the group that authorities need to get control of.
