– Thailand celebrates national holiday in honor of Queen Suthida
Monday saw Thailand enjoy a national holiday in honor of Her Majesty the Queen, with celebrations and shows of respect in all regions by local and national dignitaries. Queen Suthida, married to the reigning monarch, Rama X, was born in 1978 and became queen at the time of the coronation.

– Thailand’s ‘Most Wanted’ to be extradited from Indonesia 
Thailand’s most wanted gangster, who escaped jail in the south of Thailand, hid out in the forest, beat off a police sting raid, and fled to Indonesia. He is expected to return in chains today on a chartered plane that will fly directly to the closest landing strip to the high-security unit in Nakhon Si Thammarat. With no arrival time published by police, a high-security cavalcade of vehicles will transport him from there, as concerns exist that those who helped him escape previously might make a second attempt. Claiming to be innocent and framed, the erstwhile local gangster bigwig was sentenced for murder and racketeering before he escaped while in the hospital, claiming to have stomach pains.

– Loan sharks arrested for extortion using ‘disrobed’ photos of borrowers
In Prachinburi, a husband and wife loan-sharking duo came up with a novel way to ensure payment from borrowers. In addition to copies of ID cards, they also gleaned details of their social media friends and insisted on naked photographs of borrowers at the time the cash was handed over. This got them into hot water this week after one man, with a 500 baht loan, fell behind on his payments, only to find the uncensored snaps were sent to his family and friends as a move to encourage him to pay up. Both were duly arrested, and their home was searched, revealing loan records and numerous similar photos of male and female borrowers. Both have now been charged with illegal money lending, extortion with menaces, and the sharing of the photos, which is also illegal under the computer crimes laws here. This at least may save the blushes of others in arrears with them.

– Amateur gold shop robber nabbed after botched robbery 
Using his own motorbike with a number plate as a getaway vehicle showed that a 22-year-old wannabe gold shop robber in Ratchaburi wasn’t exactly a pro. It seems shop staff noticed that he was shaking and sweating profusely and, as a result, locked down their wares. Picking up on this, he grabbed what he could — a single 1 baht gold piece — and fled. Tracked quickly after the botched robbery, police found him and the single necklace he stole yesterday.

– Phuket man arrested for mistaken marble attack on innocent bystander
In Phuket, when a local man fell out with his ex-wife and her family following a DNA test on what he assumed was his child, he was not in the best of moods. He took out his high-power slingshot and fired a glass marble at one of her family members who beeped her bike horn at him in traffic. The only problem was that he mistook a stranger for the family member. A local beautician reported the assault to police, along with his van plate number, and he was duly arrested. No word on the test result.

– Police raids uncover after-hours partying in Pattaya bars
Meanwhile, raids this week on a handful of club-type bars in Soi Korpai led to police finding them still in full swing in the early hours, way after licensing times. All operators have been charged with numerous crimes and warned that repeat offenders will see the properties, not the operators, banned from licensing for up to five years. This will likely tick off landlords and see them clamp down on errant tenants.

– Lifeless foreigner found on Pattaya beach 
A post-mortem is being carried out this week on a foreigner found alone and beyond recovery on Pattaya Beach after being washed up in the tide. With no form of ID on his person, he was taken away by authorities. The Caucasian male is believed to have drowned; however, no official reports will be released until a full examination is carried out.

– Russian man falls from Pattaya Condo 
A 38-year-old Russian man fell from his Thepprasit Road condo yesterday. Medics removed him from the scene as police found no signs of aggression in his rented room but were told that he had asked his landlord for a payment holiday as he was low on funds. Condo staff stated that he was drunk when last seen and had been involved in a claim by a massage shop employee of harassment, which had allegedly recently been resolved. His embassy was duly informed.

– Pattaya biker arrested for underpass stunt 
The “Idiot of the Week” award goes to a local man who got his pal to film him whizzing through the underpass on Sukhumvit Road, illegally on a motorbike, and doing a wheelie. The one-wheel ride was shared among friends, but one then shared it with others, and it went viral. He handed himself in to police this week and has been charged with driving without any license or insurance and reckless driving. Word is he was thrilled by the sound of the echo of his bike in the underpass; that bike has been confiscated too.
