Pattaya, 21st February 2011 [Pattaya Daily News]: At approximately 9.00 pm Lt. Col. Kreetha Tonkhanarat,Superintendent of Children & Woman Protection Center Region 2 and a team of inspectors executed a plan to apprehend a middle-aged German who was a member of a black money gang.

The German man had deceived a German tourist into participating in his venture. The victim then informed police that he had been asked to pay 10,000 baht for purchasing the equipment needed to produce the fake money. Accordingly a sting operation was set up, in which an appointment was made for the two to meet and to exchange the equipment for 10,000 baht in cash. The place chosen was the car park at Top Supermarket, on the corner of Central Pattayab Road and 2nd Road.

At the appointed time, the German suspect was apprehended by the police task force when he appeared carrying baggage that was later found to contain lots of evidence. The suspect was known Mr. Peter-Jurgen Gramm (56), a German national according to the arrest warrant. The evidence he was carrying included 3 bottles of chemical solutions, 2 rolls of foil paper, 2 rolls of tape papers, about 1,000 pieces of black and green hard papers cut to the size of a 1,000 baht bank note and the victim’s cash of 10,000 in 10 1,000 baht bank notes. All items were impounded for evidence.

Mr. Peter-Jurgen denied being the producer of fake money. However he admitted to selling the equipment to the victim for 10,000 baht in order to let him try to make fake money. If the result was successful, the amount of money invested would be increased to 100,000 baht. In addition, the items in the baggage were sufficient for producing money approximated at several million baht. The suspect planned to sell the product for the victim if he so wished.

Enquiries into the case are continuing, particularly into how many others have been duped into this scheme.
