Region 2 Police arrest two prolific motorbike thieves in Pattaya area


Two prolific motorbike thieves in Banglamung were arrested yesterday by Region 2 Police.

The news was released to the press yesterday at a press conference led by the Region 2 Police Commander Lieutenant General Montri Yimyam.

Police arrested two suspects who were named as Eakkachai ‘Ton’ Jantamoon, 31 and Manas ‘Dam’ Saeueang, 34. They were arrested at a room in Soi Sukhumwit 31.

Seized from them were eight vehicles in total. They have been charged with multiple counts of theft by night.

Lieutenant General Montri said many motorbikes have been stolen in the Nongprue and other nearby areas since last month. Several victims of the two thieves thanked the police for successfully recovering their vehicles.

The two suspects reportedly admitted that they stole motorbikes and sold them on a LINE group to potential buyers. Those motorbikes would then be sent to Wangnoi in Phra Nakhon Si Ayutthaya before being transferred to neighbouring countries.

Police also reported that these suspects were arrested for drug charges before previously.
