PATTAYA – July 26, 2012 [Pattaya Daily News]; At 1:30 a.m., an arrest related to a previous theft case was announced by Pol. Lt. Col. Arun Prompan, tourist inspector of squad 2; Pol. Maj. Capt. Surapol Menyam, vice inspector; and investigative police forces.

The suspect was identified as Mr. Thammakrit Thanomrod, 28, living at house number 137, moo 2, Pong, Banglamung, Chonburi. He was arrested with a warrant of Pattaya court, code 433, dated June 22, 2012, that charged him with taking other people’s assets while working with co-operatives.

Pol. Lt. Col. Arun Prompan said Mr. Thammakrit’s arrest stemmed from an earlier case, that began June 15, 2012. Mrs.Prakay Janpoti, 40, and Mr. Paul Denaam, 59, had notified Pol. Capt. Chaleao Boonkoom, investigation officers on duty, that a woman and two men who claimed they were police officers had taken 12,000 baht, a cell phone, and the victim’s passport before they fled from the Diana Hotel on soi Buakhao.

After checking the CCTV, police identified two of the thieves as Mr. Wattanachai Srikhamnoi, security volunteer of Banglamoon; and Mr.Orawan Kaeodang, 43. They were arrested later. After finding out about the arrests, Mr.Thammakrit had fled from Pattaya for more than a month.

 

After he returned to Pattaya recently, the police found Mr. Thammakrit at the parking lot of Prima Palace in south Pattaya, and arrested him and seized the evidence: an ICOM communication radio, a necklace card holder with a sign, and a police security volunteer ID card of the Chiangmai police station. They then called the victim, Mrs.Prakai Janpoti, to identify him.

Mr.Thammakrit claimed that he did not touch any of the victim’s assets at the time of the June theft. He had just been standing outside on the room terrace. But after the incident, he knew that his friends had surrendered themselves to the police, so he and his girlfriend fled to Khonkan for a while, then returned to Pattaya, where he got arrested.

After their initial investigation, the police charged Mr. Thammakrit with an additional allegation of possessing a communication radio without permission. They then logged the information on the daily record for evidence, then sent the suspect and all the evidence to the police investigation team.
