SA KAEO, 10 June 2012 – Police Major-General Thanate Pinmuangngam, head of the Sa Kaeo provincial police, ordered Police Colonel Jenchoeng Prathumsuwan to dispatch officers to investigate a suspicious pick-up truck parked at a Bangchak gas station in Khao Chakan District.
In their approach to the suspected car, the officers found four people sitting in it, three males and one female, aged ranging from 23 to 28 years. As the car’s plate number has previously been reported missing in Nonthaburi province, the four suspects were taken to Sa Kaeo Police Station for questioning.
After a period of investigation, police found that the photo on the driver’s ID card did not match his actual appearances. The driver claimed that when making the driving license, he donned a wig. The other three suspects claimed the driver had asked them to come along for pleasure. However, investigations into their records revealed they were all taxi drivers working in the same area.
The four were all charged with conspiracy to commit robbery and receiving stolen goods.
