On February 24, at 12:10 a.m., the arrests of two prisoners who escaped while being driven to court was announced by Pol. Maj. Gen. Katcha Thatusart, commander of Chonburi provincial police. The recaptured prisoners were identified as Mr. Akkrapan or Ex Suwannanon, 33 years old; and Mr. Traimard Mard Ruean-in, 33 years old.

They had escaped from the police vehicle by using smuggled tools to pick their handcuff locks and cut a hole through the vehicle’s roof. They then ran away on the railway alongside the road, moo 10, Khao Talo, Nongprue, Banglamung.

The quick recapture of the suspects resulted from the investigative work of Pol. Col. Thitiwat Suriyachai, director of the detective division, provincial police 2; Pol. Col. Somnuek janket, the director of the Nongprue police station; Pol. Lt. Col. Kongsak Boonsuesuwarn, vice director of the detective division; and Pol. Capt. Kornpong Sukwisit, vice inspector of the detective division.

The police team had followed the trail of the two escapees, and eventually located and arrested them in a room at the Bangpu Resort, Parkpayoon, Nakhon Si Thammarat province.

After their arrests, Mr. Akkrapan confessed that he had made a prior plan to escape, by having his relative smuggle him a heavy-duty scissors knife to cut the vehicle roof and a bent wire to pick his handcuff locks. Then while he was being transported to the court, he took the opportunity when the police were careless to escape, by unlocking his handcuffs and cutting a hole in the ceiling, and exiting the vehicle with another prisoner, Mr. Traimard.

Later that evening, Mr. Akkrapan’s friend dropped them off at a road in the city area of Mueang Chonburi. Then the two men rode on a van to Bangkok to sleep in a hotel for a night. The next day, they went to Hua Lam Pong to catch the train to Nakhon Si Thammarat.

When they got there, they told Mr. Akkrapan’s friend what they had done, but the friend did not let them sleep in his house. So the two prisoners then rented a room at the Bangpu resort, in order to rest and make a plan where to hide out. But they got arrested again.

Pol. Maj. Gen. Katcha praised the work of the Nongprue detective team in tracking down the escapees. The police team had investigated and found that the prisoners had been in Nakhon Si Thammarat. So they joined with detective provincial police 2 to track them down. The officers of the two divisions would be applauded for the quick recapture, the police commander said.

At the time of their escape, the two suspects were charged with detaining and extorting victims for money. They had been arrested by the Nongprue police working with the Office of the Narcotics Control Board police. Mr. Akkrapan is the son of a Pattaya highway police officer. He had previously been detained by other area police for robbing, raping and adultery.
