Brothers arrested for motorbike thefts


Banglamung police arrested two brothers accused of stealing motorbikes in Huay Yai.

Rithikrai Klongkum, 23, and his 14-year-old brother were apprehended in Sattahip Jan. 21 after being chased by Banglamung officers who suspected their bikes were stolen.

Sen. Sgt. Maj. Chatchai Rakkhwamchob said the Kongkum brothers were spotted riding around on a black-and-white Honda Wave. Given their previous records, police followed the two to a beauty parlor where the younger brother was spotted getting on a red-and-black Kawasaki KSR.

It was him - he took my motorbike. It was him – he took my motorbike.

After spotting their police tail, the brothers sped off on the two bikes until they were captured at a Bangjak gas station.

Police claim Rithikrai confessed to stealing the motorbikes so his brother – too young for a driver’s license – would have something to ride to school.
