Pattaya, 12th March 2011 [Pattaya Daily News]: At 4:30 p.m., Police Major General Chote Lamom Investigating Officer and the Chief of Special Suppresion Unit of Pattaya Department, Chonburi, along with the police force arrested a group of teenage motorcycle robbers. The two youngest gang members (identified by nicknames only) were Mr. Ton and Miss Tae, aged 13 and 15 respectively. Three 17-year-old suspects were Mr. Pat, Mr.Tom and Mr. Rut. Oldest suspects included Mr. Nai Chawmon, aged 32, and Mr. Watee Chomnontien, aged 29 (resides at No. 79/20 Moo.5, Pootaluang, Sattahip, Chonburi). They were caught red-handed with 6 Honda motorcycles.

Many people and tourists from around Mike Shopping Mall recently filed complaints of stolen motorcycles that parked at this mall. Based on these reports, the superintendent Police General Nantawut Suwanlaong has assigned his officers to investigate the teenage gangs.

The police had an undercover agent who reported that the gang members’ ages ranged between 13-17 years old. The undercover agent was also aware that the motorbikes were sold for approximately 3,000-5,000 Baht each, in Sattahip District. The officers lied in wait at the suspected location until they arrested the target suspects. With further investigations, the police later arrested 4 more teenagers, 2 buyers and seized 6 stolen motorcycles.

The five teenagers admitted their conviction and also confessed their leader’s name – Mr. Bank (unknown name and surname), aged around 20-21. When doing the crime, Mr. Bank was in charge of stealing while his partners were watching out for him. They have been stealing over 16 motorcycles.

The police held a press conference at Pattaya Police Station, drawing lots of public attention as people were curious to see the suspects. Only one victim were there to identify the missing bike. The police planned to investigate further and return all motorcycles to their right owners.
