Chinese National Arrested at Condo for Selling “Weapons of War” Online in Samut Prakan

The suspect sold his weapons through an Instagram account.

Some of the suspect’s social media posts on IG.

On February 18th, 2021, police in Samut Prakan raided the condo of a Chinese national, Wu Qiang, 37 years of age, after an investigation found that he was using an Instagram account (link in “Sources” section) to sell weapons of war online.

Officers found 5 grams of ice, a cache of firearms, explosives, and 12,000 rounds of ammo.

From a review of his social media account, Mr. Qiang liked cats and relaxing poolside, taking photos of his sun-soaked feet.

My take: I’ve been told that social media is the best place to buy both drugs and weapons. But come on guys, be a bit more discreet.
