Pattaya, 14th March 2011 [Pattaya Daily News]: At 9.45 p.m., Police General Nantawut Suwanlaaong, Superintendent of Pattaya Department, Chonburi was informed that there has been a burning of motorcycle tires, occurring at Siam Commercial Bank ATM machine in Middle Pattaya branch (located at no.512/17, Moo.9, Middle Pattaya Rd, Nongprue, Banglamung, Chonburi) The police hurried to the crime scene along with Pol.Lt.Gen Tarathep Toopanit, Assistant Superintendent and Pol.Lt.Gen Krissakorn Tong-in, Assistant Superintendent.

At the scene, the police discovered burnt motorcycle tires, fires extinguished. The integrity of the bank was undamaged. The bank security guard (unknown name), who witnessed the incident told the police that two young men, both wearing yellow shirts and jeans, were driving a motorcycle (blue and grey Honda Wave 100, registered no. plate: Kor-Yor-Thor 21, Chonburi) together to the bank. Then they burnt approximately 10 tires – inner and outer tires in front of the ATM machine. After that they drove away quickly.

Afterwards the police found two suspects, driving on Pattaya No.3 Road, nearby to Excite Pub. Their outfits and motorcycle matched the witness’ description. When the suspects saw the police, they abandoned the tires at the pub and escaped immediately. The police tailgated them but they managed to change their clothes in between the times. Hence the police lost them at Bongkot Soi across South Pattaya road.

Around 30 minutes later, the officer found the motorcycle parked at Boy Laundry Shop at CV Soi, South Pattaya. A yellow shirt smelt of gas was abandoned nearby. Inside the shop, Mr. Chalermpon Saentad, aged 35 (resides at No. 8/25, Moo. 9, Nongprue, Banglamung, Chonburi) was eating, wearing a towel. His wife, Miss Wanwisa Anuwan, aged 23 (resides at No.43, Moo 6, Chaiyaporn, Buengkarn, Nongkai) was washing clothes. The police interrogated Mr. Chalermpon who denied all accusation. The suspect claimed that he was at home all day and was unaware of the burnt tire incident.

Police General Nantawut stated that police had reliable witnesses and evidence, even though the suspect denied the conviction. The suspect would be detained for further questioning and charged later.

The suspect also burnt tires at Pattaya city hall right before the incident. From the investigation, the suspect bought tires from a motorcycle garage at Bongkot Soi. The officer believed that this burning was simply due to vandalism and did not involve any local or national political reasons.
