District officials stopped Pimarn Kannikar, 36, at a road checkpoint at 5pm after seeing he was riding a motorcycle.
His Burmese passenger failed to show any travel documents. Pimarn later led officials to arrest five other men he has smuggled to hide in the district.
Pimarn was charged with smuggling migrants into the kingdom while the six were charged with unlawful entry into the country. They would be deported after legal action.
