PATTAYA – July 28, 2012 [Pattaya Daily News]; At 12:15 a.m., A police checkpoint was set up in Pattaya by Pol. Col. Pisit Proyroongroj, Deputy Commander, Chonburi province; together with Pol. Col. Panthana Nuchanart, Superintendent, Pattaya police station; Pol. Lt. Col. Kierttisak Sathongoy, Deputy Superintendent; who together mobilized the forces of the Pattaya police team, the detection police of Chonburi province, and the drug suppression division police.

The checkpoint was set up to inspect passing vehicles and make arrests for any illegal items. Police were stationed at the intersection of Soi 12 and second Pattaya road, Moo 9, Tambon Nong Preu, Amphur Banglamung, Chonburi province.

For the first time in Chonburi, the police used a new hi-tech automobile “used to X-ray for weapons and illegal items.” Both motorbikes and cars were randomly stopped. Motorbikes were visually inspected as usual.

 

However, suspicious looking cars were directed to park along the roadside. When about 10 cars were parked, the people inside were ordered to get out of their vehicles. The officers then drove the hi-tech car past the vehicles to scan the parked cars with the X-ray device.
An X-ray screen in the hi-tech car allowed police to see if any illegal items such as guns or drugs were concealed in the vehicles. However, after two hours of scanning vehicles, no weapons or drugs were found.

Pol. Col. Pisit Proyroongroj said this was the first use of a hi-tech car in Chonburi province to inspect for illegal items. The X-ray unit was being tested for efficiency and its ability to inspect inside vehicles, along with normal visual inspections by police.

The hi-tech police car will be used at future checking points in the other target areas to help the police increase the number of arrests for motorists hiding illegal weapons and drugs in their cars.
