A South Korean fugitive convicted on drug-dealing and human-trafficking charges back home was captured in Pattaya.
Seone In-Sik, 33, had been sought under an Interpol “red notice”. Chonburi police were contacted to track the wanted gangster, with Interpol saying he’d been staying in the province since 2013.
Chonburi and Nongprue police tracked him to the Baan Sirin housing estate in Nongprue’s Moo 5 village.
Police seized an unregistered BMW sedan, along with records of Thai women dispatched to work at various South Pattaya entertainment venues.
In-Sik denied all charges and refused to talk with police. However, his visa was found to have expired and he was prepared for deportation.
The South Korean embassy meanwhile was inquiring whether In-Sik had trafficked any Thai women to work in that country.
Wanted South Korean fugitive Seone In-Sik was found hiding in Pattaya.
