Police claim Webb had on several occasions abused a 12-year-old he’d procured from a Thai woman arrested along with two other foreign customers earlier. After learning of the pimp’s arrest, police allege, Webb panicked, moving and changing his phone number and giving Chonburi Immigration seven false addresses. He allegedly also used several cars fearing he’d be caught.

He supposedly owned a bicycle parts manufacturing company in the United States, but turned over the business to his children when he retired and moved to Thailand.
