Two ex-convicts were arrested after pulling a BB gun on officers at a police checkpoint.
Suriya Chaiyakul, 39, and Yos Khuanamol, 38, were apprehended in Jomtien Beach July 16, about five kilometers from the checkpoint they broke through on Soi Kophai.
Both aboard a tiny Yamaha Meo with no license plate, one of the two suspects pointed the BB gun at police and fled. Once they were run down, police also found them carrying pliers and a screwdriver.
Suriya Chaiyakul and Yos Khuanamol are interrogated by police for pointing a BB gun at them whilst running a checkpoint.
Suriya confessed he was recently released from prison, where he was incarcerated for burglary and drug possession. Suriya added that he and Yos were now robbing homes again and did not want to stop for police.
