Passport forgers charged over body in freezer
THREE foreign men belonging to a suspected passport forgery ring were charged after police found them with drugs, guns and a dismembered body stashed in the freezer of a Bangkok building.
Police said they are working to confirm the nationalities of the English speakers, who were found with multiple passports, but suspect they are American or British.
The US embassy said it was following the case but could not comment due to privacy concerns.
One of the men grabbed a gun and opened fire during the raid on the alleged crime den, injuring one officer who has been hospitalised.
Police seized a cache of drugs and guns and discovered the body parts of a man, described as a blond for-
eigner, inside a padlocked freezer.
A Burmese couple detained with the group told police they were hired to clean the building three times a week and ordered not to open or move the freezer where the dead body was found. –
