Pattaya, the 20th of July 2010 [Pattaya Daily News]: At approximately 6:00am on Tuesday, Captain Jamrat Thongjinda (Pattaya Police Investigator) and a team of officers raided a derelict house in Soi 7, Thepprasit Road. The occupants of the house were thought to be involved with industrial wire thefts in the area and were suspected drug users.

Following a complaint from local residents, police raided the premises and arrested a man, now known to be Mr. Jakphet Bunmee [40]. Investigations revealed the presence of a significant amount stripped electrical wiring stored on Mr. Bunmee’s Honda Wave motorbike and side-cart. At present police estimate that there was approximately 30kg worth of wiring stored on the motorbike.

Under interrogation, Mr. Bunmee claimed that he had obtained the wiring from a construction site that he had recently finished working on. He stated that the wiring was left over material from the construction and that he was preparing to sell to the item to a local merchant.

Reluctant to believe his story due to the condition and quantity of wiring present, police arrested Mr. Bunmee for further interrogation. In addition, police also arrested four other persons, believed to be local street vendors and recycling traders, after resultant drug tests returned positive. All four offenders and Mr. Bunmee admitted to having recently consumed both Ya-Ba and marijuana.

Mr. Bunmee has now been detained by police and is expected to be charged with theft while both he and the four other arrested offenders will be charged with class-1 and/or class-5 illegal drug use.
