Handcuffed Dealer Makes A Mad Dash For Freedom

An arrested drug dealer escaped from a police senior sergeant who had his back turned while unlocking the jail cell at the police station. More than 50 officers hunted for the escapee, and found him later hiding in a woodpile some distance away, after getting a lift from some teens on motorbikes.

CHONBURI – October 25, 2012 [Pattaya Daily News]: at 9 p.m., an intensive manhunt was conducted for a handcuffed suspect who had escaped custody at the police station. Leading the search were Pol. Maj. Gen.Katcah Thatusart, the commander of Chonburi provincial police; with Pol. Col. Suphathee Boongklong, the vice commander of Chonburi provincial police; and Pol. Col. Itthiporn Pothong, the director of Sansuk police station; who brought 50 police forces from the police station and other volunteers.

The escaped suspect was accused of drug dealing and had been arrested at 7:30 p.m. After he had been questioned, he was sent to be locked up in in the jail on the second floor of Sansuk police station. The suspect was being escorted by Pol. Sen. Serg. Maj. Prasart Poseekram, the officer of the shift.

But the police sergeant was walking in front of the suspect, and he had his back to the suspect while using the key to open the door of the jail. So the suspect seized the opportunity to run away and jump down to the second floor of the stairs.

The suspect then ran out of the front entrance of the police station and crossed the road and disappeared into the roadside forest. He escaped so quickly that no police officers ran after him — they just reported that the man had run away with handcuffs.

 

When the police commander found out about the escape, he came to the police station and read the arrest report of the drug dealer, who was identified as Mr. Tossaporn Inboon, age 28, living in Bang Phra, Sri Racha. Mr. Tossaporn had been arrested for selling 18 tablets of illegal drugs to undercover detectives. Previously, he had been arrested many times on similar charges.

The commander of Chonburi provincial police got furious at the sergeant for letting the suspect escape. He flamed at the sergeant, and said he was brainless and had worked without efficiency. It was also dangerous for the sergeant to be so careless, because the suspect could have used his own police gun to shoot him, the commander fumed. Because the sergeant carelessly let the drug dealer walked behind him, the suspect had escaped with the handcuffs.

The commander was expecting that the night shift police would be searching all night for the escapee, because there was a report that the suspect had been given a ride by some teenagers on a motorcycle going through the Angsila route.
Some witnesses had seen them while they were riding past the fish bridge in soi Khunpluem, Angsila. So the police encircled the soi to search for the suspect, but could not find him. But they assumed he was hiding somewhere in the soi.

As for the three male teenagers who were thought to have given the suspect a ride, when they saw the police, they jumped and ran to escape. But the police brought them to question if they were the ones who helped the drug dealer escape. But they answered hesitantly, so the police will continue to question them to find the truth.

 

After the police officers had been searching for more than 4 hours, they finally found the suspect hiding in a wood pile in the middle of the soi. Police had earlier found the evidence of cell phone of the teenagers who had helped him, which alerted them to his nearby presence.

So police officers encircled the area and finally found the man crouching inside the woodpile. When Mr. Tossaporn knew he was cornered, he crawled out on knees or knees and hands to beg the police, because he knew he would be accused of many more allegations because of his escape.

It was lucky that the police had found the escapee, because if they had not, they all would have been questioned by their commander for the lapse in security.
