Four male suspects were arrested last week during a police crime sweep through the area.
Wiriya “Wechsub”, 31, was charged with purse snatching. For his criminal acts he used a motorbike with the license plate distorted to avoid recognition. He was also in possession of a mobile phone and illegal drugs.
Komsan “Net” Songnok, 23, and Teerapong “Ying” Athiya, 26, were accomplices in the theft of cooking gas tanks, microwaves and a lawn mower. They admitted to having committed these crimes regularly in the Banglamung area.
Saran “Ram” Poonpat was caught with a 7.65 mm Thaipradith revolver and 0.38 grams of ya ice.
Pol. Col. Chidecha Songhong, Superintendent of Nongprue Police, with Pol. Lt. Col. Nattakorn Mongkolmaha and Pol. Maj. Kengsart Nuanpong announced the arrests at a June 1 press conference.
Chidecha said police will continue efforts to prevent crimes against the citizens of Banglamung, and punish criminals who do commit them.
