A Thai man out for revenge after having half his arm chopped off in an earlier dispute was busted by police with drugs and a gun before he could get payback.
Nopporn Kesatcha, missing half his right arm, and 29-year-old driver Sompong Koyangpuak were taken into custody at a police checkpoint early Saturday. Officers recovered a loaded 11 mm. pistol and two packs of crystal methamphetamines from the truck.
Nopporn Kesatcha (seated) is asked to give an explanation for the 11mm. pistol found in his possession.
Nopporn, 26, explained he’d lost his forearm in a fight with a local gang member known only as “Sam” in 2006. His arm had healed, but his pride hadn’t. When he heard Sam was back in town, he told police he rounded up Sompong to unleash some retribution.
The two were jailed on drugs and weapons charges.
