A German man was arrested for allegedly selling fake vehicle licenses to other foreigners.
Arthur Wilhelm Grudda, 36, was taken into custody outside a restaurant on Thepprasit Soi 10 Dec. 12. Officers found on him two fake licenses for the Swiss man who tipped off police.
Daniel Wetzel, 55, called police after becoming suspicious about Grudda’s alleged offer to sell him car and motorbike licenses for 15,000 each. He’d inquired with police whether a foreigner not working for the government could legally do such a thing.
Arthur Wilhelm Grudda (seated) has been arrested and charged with falsifying government documents and fraud.
Police informed him that, of course, he couldn’t, and arranged for Wetzel to go through with the meeting to buy the documents.
Police said Grudda confessed to the charges, saying he’d been making fake licenses for five years. He was charged with falsifying government documents and fraud.
