The police checkpoint was stationed at Mab 2 community, Soi Kai Muay 3, Moo 6 Tambon Nong Preu, Amphur Banglamung, Chonburi province.

The incident began when a man riding a blue Honda Wave motorbike, license number NGOR WORNGOR-706 Chonburi, tried to escape the checkpoint.

But he lost control of his motorbike, which fell down. So he left his bike and ran into the forest. While escaping, the man dumped two blue plastic bags, each containing 200 amphetamine tablets. The man was caught by the police and volunteer police. They arrested him and seized his motorbike and the drugs.

 

Police handcuffed the defendant, and were transporting him in a pickup truck to the Banglamung police station, Nong Preu branch. Sitting beside the suspect was a volunteer policeman, Mr. Vichit Thongbai, age 63.

However, when the truck neared the Amphan resort, the defendant resisted and shook off the handcuffs until it broke loose. He then attacked and beat Mr. Vichit, who fell from the truck onto the road. Mr. Vichit was seriously injured with a broken right arm and scratches all over his body.

The suspect then ran into the forest by the road. The police and volunteer police together with the Civil Defense Volunteers mobilized forces to blockade the area. More than 30 officers surrounded the area and began to search for the suspect.

The injured volunteer policeman was rushed to the Bangkok Pattaya hospital, coordinated by the rescue officer of the Sawangboribul Pattaya foundation.

The police forces searched for more than two hours, but could not find the suspect because it was so dark in the forest.

 

Under the seat of the suspect’s motorbike, police found documents that identified the suspect as Mr. Veera Chaidam, age 32, address51/41 Moo 2 Tambon Na Kleu, Amphur Banglamung, Chonburi province. Police seized the documents for evidence and went to his house but still could not find him.
