PHUKET – January 20, 2013 [Pattaya Daily News]; A report of three students breaking into a school’s computer room at night to play video games was received by Pol. Sub. Lt. Pichet Choomnuam, Deputy Inspector, Cherngtalay police station, Amphur Thalarng, Phuket province; who together with Pol. Sub. Lt. Theeradech Denpreechakul, Deputy Inspector, went to check the scene.

The police were notified by Mr. Wanno Tansakul, a computer teacher at Baan Cherng Talay school, Tantivit, Moo 1 Tambon Cherngtalay, Amphur Thalarng, Phuket province. At the scene, police found a group of angry male and female teachers standing in front of the school’s computer room, which contains many computers for teaching and studying at the school.

The police opened the computer room to inspect inside, and found a haze of cigarette smoke all over the room. In the middle of the room, police saw three male students of primary school grade level playing computer games together, who looked very tired.

On a computer table, police found some instant noodles, a bag of bread, and a can of fish that was already opened to eat. There were lighted candles on the floor, as well as a lot of smoked cigarette butts, which also littered the top of the teacher’s desk. Several big blankets and pillows were placed beside the computer chair. On a shelf there was a knife with a foot-long blade.

The police seized everything for evidence and restrained the three boys to investigate. During questioning, the boys said that they escaped from their houses the previous night on Saturday. They had brought with them the knife, instant noodles, fish cans, candles, a cigarette lighter, and cigarettes from their homes.

They used the knife to pry open the door to the computer room of the school. They then sneaked into the room to play video games and browse on Facebook. They lighted the candles to avoid turning on the room lights, to better conceal their presence in the room. They got the blankets, pillows and more snacks by breaking into the rooms of the kindergarten students and the co-operative room of school.

The three game boys said they camped out in the computer room because they are crazy about computer games, but did not have money to play games at Internet shops. So they broke into the computer game room of the school to play video games.

They admitted to police that they had illegally broken into the computer room three previous times. They had been caught and punished by the teacher for breaking into the room. But they were not afraid of further punishment, because they wanted to play the computer games for free.

Initially, the police had the three students clean up their mess in the computer room. The officers then took the boys to the Cherngtalay police station to make a record of their criminal activity. Police also informed their parents, and will prosecute the game boy addicts further according to the law.
