A the scene the officers found many brand new illegal electronic football gambling vending machines. When the police tried to arrest the gang some of them tried escape out the back of the building over a roof destroying it in the process, but were quickly arrested by the police. A total of 8 male teenagers were arrested.

 

Upon initial investigation, Mr. Aphiwat Banlane or K, aged 22, his domicile was at Amphur Ban Bueng, Chonburi province, he confessed that he was the owner of all 60 football gambling vending machines that were hidden in the building. He claimed that he just came out from jail for a serious offense and wanted to work so that he could make a lot of money His friends then introduced him to a well known capitalist named Mr Korn who lent him the vending machines to install in Pattaya city and they agreed to divide the revenue 70% : 30% which Mr. Aphiwat would get 30% and a capitalist would get 70%.

 

He then kept the machines in the rented building for 6 months in order to prepare to set up them all over Pattaya city but due to the political unrest and the Army taking charge the NCPO had ordered a strict control on illegal gambling. Mr Aphiwat was afraid of being arrested so he persuaded his friends in a same gang to go and steal the machines and move them to another location which was observed by the police who arrested all 8 gang members. The police also seized 60 football gambling machines and detained the 8 defendants to be prosecuted according to Thai law.
