Nongprue police have recovered the partially disassembled chassis of three presumably stolen motorbikes at the Mabprachan Reservoir.
Villagers called police Jan. 24 after discovering the black Honda Nova-S, black Honda Wave and Honda Flash near a water-pumping station about 500 meters from the road.
Some of the bikes’ tires and engine parts had been removed. Police believe the bikes were stripped of items that could be resold and the rest left behind. Officers also recovered a spent .38-calibor bullet casing.
Three partially disassembled, presumably stolen motorbikes were found at Mabprachan Reservoir.
Neighbor Jarin Nokwon, 53, said the area is frequented by teenagers camping and drinking. The previous evening a group of about a half-dozen teens had been seen in the area.
Police are trying to determine ownership of the bikes. Inquires can be made at Nongprue Police Station.
