Police are investigating the origin of three M4A rifles and 964 bullets that were discovered on Saturday inside large PVC pipes hidden in thick bushes within a tapioca plantation in Chacheongsao province.

Police suspect that the weapons found in Panom Sarakham district had been hidden recently, as the guns with serial numbers M320461, M130203 and M320461 were wrapped in two Thairath newspapers dated November 20. Besides the guns and ammunition, police along with administrative officials led by district chief Thitirat Saengngam also found one empty fertilizer sack, one empty sack of rice from a local rice mill, a pink handbag and a duffel bag.

The weapons batch was discovered by a tractor driver, Noo Kaewroj, 65, who had been hired by plantation owner Chalai Thamcharoen, 54, to level soil around the pond of the seven-rai plantation on Saturday evening.
