An organized group of suspects have been regularly stealing motorbikes in the Nongprue and Pattaya area during the past month, Lt. General Yimyam told the Associated Thai Press.

Police seized fifteen motorbikes which were reportedly being sold on Facebook groups and profiles such as: ‘Jong Khondee’, ‘Let He Go Banboy’ and ‘กำนัน เล็ก. Police identified the social media group and profiles after a tip from a victim of the alleged group of thieves.

Four males and one female suspect were arrested in total yesterday during an organized raid on the suspects homes.
