AMNAT CHAROEN – January 31, 2013 [Pattaya Daily News]; the arrest of a teen who was the leader of a gang of motorbike thieves was announced in front of the police station of Amphur Pathumratvongsa in Amnat Charoen province.

The suspect was identified as “Mr. A” (alias), age 15, a secondary school student grade 3 of a well-known school in Amphur Khemmarat. He is also the son of a C8 teacher in the office of the educational area of the primary school Ubonratchathani, region 2.

Police said Mr. A led a teen gang that was stealing motorbikes. During his arrest, officers seized a blue Honda motorbike that was stolen the previous night at about 10 p.m. It had been parked next to the stage at a concert by a Thai country singer at Tambon Pathumratvongsa municipal.
