Pattaya, 31 October 2010: Mr. Phornthawee Siriphornpreeda [35], the accomplice of a second-hand shop proprietor, Woraphot Sripraco [44], who doubled as a Pattaya Traffic Volunteer, was caught in a police raid with 31 pieces of stolen phone cable that he’d intended to give to his two accomplices at Petronas Petrol Station, Krathinglai-Rayong.

“I divided the 50-metre cable that I’d just cut off the phone line into 31 smaller pieces and had just given them to my friend’s wife, Mrs. Thongpan Sripraco, when the police arrived at 2pm,” suspect Phornthawee told PDN.

Police spokesman Pol.Lt.Col. Pheeraphong Laonavin further told PDN that Phornthawee had confessed to phoning the Sripracos to come and collect the booty in their bronze Toyota Vigo pickup. All that Woraphot , the volunteer cop, would admit to was merely responding to Phornthawee’s phone call, claiming no knowledge of what his friend wanted the car for. Pol.Lt.Col. Pheeraphong told PDN that incriminating evidence such as a pair of pliers, an official radio, a long airgun, and other thieving kit had been found in the vicinity of the trio.

The trio will be charged with direct or indirect theft of public property, using a private vehicle in the offence, illegal possession of a firearm, accepting stolen goods and the unauthorised use of an official radio. Volunteer Woraphot is likely to have his second hand shop, ‘Sapmankhong’, closed down and will be subjected to an investigation leaving his police career in jeopardy.
