SRIRACHA – September 17, 2012 [Pattaya Daily News]; at 7 p.m., a report of a drug dealer being killed in a shootout with police was received Pol. Col. Somneuk Jankate, Superintendent, Banglamung police station, Chonburi province.

He was informed of the extrajudicial killing by Pol. Lt. Col. Nit Vithinanthakit, Inspector, Banglamung police station. After the commander received the report, he ordered Pol. Col. Supphathee Boonkrong, Deputy Commander, Chonburi province to inspect the scene.

The incident occurred at Soi Tapioca power Sahamit factory, Moo 4 Tambon Beung, Amphur Sriracha, Chonburi province. At the scene, police found the suspect’s car, a white Nissan Cefiro, license number 3 HOR 9862 Bangkok.

The car was ridden with bullet holes. The dead suspect was sitting in the car, and had been shot many times. He was identified as Mr. Kitti Toompetch or Nott Thoongkrad, age 30.

Mr. Kitti was found with two guns: a .38 caliber gun was lying between his legs, and at his left leg was an 11 mm pistol. Police also found 30 11 mm bullets.

On the left seat beside the suspect were 2,000 amphetamine tablets and 50 grams of ya-ice. Standing next to the car were relatives of the dead suspect, crying in sorrow.

Pol. Maj. Nit Vithinunthakit revealed that the police sting was set up with an undercover agent, who had arranged to buy the amphetamines and ya-ice from the suspect. An appointment was made to deliver the drugs to the Leelavadee resort, Baan Nong Kwae, Moo 3 Tambon Beung, Amphur Sriracha, Chonburi province.

However, the suspect knew the movement of the police, so he changed the delivery location to another place. But the police followed them. When the suspect saw the police, he began shooting the 11 mm gun repeatedly at officers. So the police shot him to protect themselves until the suspect was killed in his car.

Police said that Mr. Kitti Toompetch has a history related to the gang of amphetamine dealers in Pattaya and Amphur Banglamung. Prior to the fatal shootout, Mr. Kitti had been out on bail from a previous arrest. But finally he was extrajudicially killed by the police.
