On July 27, at 10.30 PM, Pol.Col.Nopadol Wongnom, Pattaya Superintendent, and Pol.Maj. Chalermsak Tienthongsri, Investigation Officer, jointly announced the arrest of two suspects, one of whom had stolen motorbikes to strip and sell for spare parts. The suspects were Mr. Likit Grienggratoke (22), a student mechanic attending Aksorn Technology School, Pattaya and Mr. Somchai Somnuk (27), both from Chonburi. They were found in possession of a stolen blue and black Honda Wave 125 motorbike, and the skeleton of a black and white Honda Wave 125 I, which the suspects had stripped down to frame, wheels and engine. The disassembled motorbike belonged to Mrs. Somjit Bamrungya, (33), from Naklua. She and her husband had come to identify the suspects at the police station.

Pol.Col. Nopadol said that Mrs.Somjit and her husband had notified police on July 22, that a Honda Wave 125, which they had bought 3 months ago for their son, a 1st. year student at Aksorn, to go to school on, had been stolen. Her son had parked the motorbike in the school court yard and forgot to remove the ignition key from the motorbike, which was later stolen, they suspected, by students from the same school.

Police investigated the theft and identified Mr. Likit Grienggratoke, a 3rd-year student, as the likely suspect. Police had apparently followed and managed to arrest him while he was taking another stolen motorbike to hide at Mr. Somchai’s house to strip and sell. In addition, Mr.Likit had also replaced parts of his own motorbike with some of stolen spare parts. Police arrested both Messrs. Likit and. Somchai with the evidence.

Mr.Likit confessed that he was the motorbike thief, but Mr. Somchai had only provided a hiding place for the motorbikes and helped to strip them to sell and share the money. Police charged them with joint theft and they will be prosecuted.
