Pattaya, the 9th of April 2010 [Pattaya Daily News]: At approximately 5:00pm on Friday, Police Lieutenant Colonel Greetha Tankanarak, along with a team of officers, raided a house in Moo. 5 Naklua arresting the occupant, Mr. Winai Kiengpong [49] with the use of a warrant issued by the Pattaya Court. Mr Kiengpong is a local baht bus driver and is suspected to have stolen the credit card of an injured British tourist following a motorbike accident.

The accident occurred in May of 2009, Mr. Peter Gerald Miskimin [54] a British national was involved in a serious motorbike accident of which Mr. Kiengpong had been a witness to. Mr. Kiengpong, in what was thought an act of kindness, stopped his baht bus to help Mr. Miskimin, bringing him via his baht bus to the Banglamung Hospital. It is alleged that during the struggle to carry Mr. Miskimin to the bus Mr. Kiengpong stole his credit card.

Whilst at the hospital receiving treatment, Mr. Miskimin was devastated to find that the card was missing, discovering later on that an amount of 55,000 baht had been withdrawn from the card. The transactions were made at the Banglamung Hospital ATM and the Soi Bongkot ATM in Central Pattaya.

Mr. Miskimin reported the incident to police immediately following his release from hospital and had been assured that an investigation would commence immediately. However; it was not until the 9th of April 2010 that anything emerged in relation to his case.

Mr. Kiengpong has now been arrested and taken to the Banglamung Police Station for further questioning, at the conclusion of which it is anticipated he will be charged on various theft related charges.
