Officers stationed at the Ban Nongketnoi Police in Nong Plalai discovered three men and a woman smoking methamphetamines near a field where they’d discovered the license plate from the pink Yamaha Fino reported stolen earlier that day by Prakaidao Sangthong, a secondary school student at Thung Sukla Wittaya School in Sriracha.

Investigators seized a pink Fino, 21 ya ba tablets, a small pack of marijuana, more than 51,000 baht in cash, gold necklace, mobile phone, knife and drug paraphernalia.

With backup from the Banglamung Police Station, officers raided the leased room and arrested Pipat Prakobtham, 19, and Sansanee Jaiyangyouen, 20, of Banglamung; Tong Kaewsuwan, 33, of Udon Thani; and Saeree Prangkokkruad, 19, of Nakhon Ratchasima.

The four did not contest the drug charges, but maintained they did not rob the girl of her motorbike. However, Prakaidao later positively identified all four as the people who’d taken her Fino at gunpoint on Nongkla-Nongpangpuay Road in Sriracha’s Bung District.

Officers believe the four arrested are part of a larger drug and theft ring and have expanded their investigation.
