In a previous story, we reported the case of two men on a motorbike who shot and murdered the karaoke staff member in front of Sun Dance Karaoke Bar on Soi Day-Night on 8 August 2007. Police reviewed the CCTV camera and were able to identify the face of the shooter. On 9 August 2007 at 2:30 PM, Police Colonel Phairat Suphasawas, Deputy Superintendent, Chonburi and the investigation team joined to announce the arrest of Mr. Seksan Glinhom, nickname “A” (19), Mr. Goragorn Sae-Guen, nickname “Dook” (19) and Mr. Phamorn Janboonrueng, nickname “To” (20), who were charged with conspiracy to murder Mr. Pongthep Phanisen, a karaoke bar staff member.

The three men were hiding at Boon-Laor Flat, in Rayong province. Police arrested them with the evidence of a gun and a bullet, a black and blue Honda Click motorbike, license 581, Chonburi, which they used when they shot Mr. Pongthep. The investigation also determined that the gang has committed crimes around the Pattaya area.

Moreover, Sriracha police also held an arrest warrant for another four people in the same gang. They are Mr. Apidej Poota, nickname, “Jo”, a Volunteer Police officer, Class No. 3 (23), Mr. Nathawut Chompoo, nickname “Note” (17), Mr. Chatchai Insa-ad, nickname “O” (18) and Mr. Somporn Simaghong, nickname “Rud” (26), with the evidence of a gun, four mobile phones and four motorbikes. All of them have committed many crimes in Pattaya with the assistance of the gang member who is a volunteer policeman.

Police had Mr. Seksan, Mr. Goragorn and Mr. Phamorn describe the killing in front of several witnesses. The three of them were involved in the first encounter with the victim. On the night of the murder, two of the original three returned. Mr. Gorn was the motorbike rider and Mr. Seksan was the shooter. They confessed that they had been drinking at a bar on the same Soi, two hundred meters away from Sun Dance Karaoke, and had become drunk. As they had an earlier conflict with Mr. Pongthep and other staff members, they went back to their room and borrowed a gun from Mr. Aphidej or “Jo” who is a volunteer policeman, and came back to kill Mr. Pongthep.

Pol.Col. Phairat Suphasawas, Deputy Superintendent, Chonburi, revealed that the gang has the history of criminal cases. With the assistance of a friend who is a volunteer policeman, who checked for police movement before they committed their crimes, they usually were able to get away without getting caught. Police will work with the Volunteer Police to better screen candidates for the Volunteer Police. Any Volunteer Police officers who are involved in crimes will receive severe punishment.
