Red-shirt linked weapons seized this week were from an old stockpile and would be of no use, a security source said.
The remark came after the police raided a condominium in Nonthaburi on Monday night and reportedly found several bombs linked to a red-shirt hardliner loyal to Wuttipong “Ko Tee” Kotthammakhun.
Rirkchapol Poolsilp, 53, a Yala resident, was arrested after an M26 grenade, four home-made small bombs, two pipe bombs and 20 large firecrackers were found in a room at Muang Thong Thani sondominium.
Deputy Police Commissioner General Pol General Srivara Ransibrahmanakul said Rirkchapol had admitted that he was a red-shirt military leader under Wuttipong’s command.
The security source said more weapons had been hidden in the area, but there was no sign that they would be taken out for use
