thai border control

As the land of smiles enters its 75th day without any new cases of the coronavirus, other bordering countries are facing yet another wave.

As a result, Thai border control on land is on high alert in fears it might spread into Thailand after thousands of illegal migrants were arrested in the past month.

Recently on August 6th, more than 20 cases have been reported at a Sadao checkpoint. Thai immigration officials conducted an intensive screening process along the border of Kedah, Malaysia. But many still get through untraced said officials.

The report also stated that many Malaysians returning from India were not being quarantined. As a result, a restaurant owner delivering goods in and out of the Sadao checkpoint was found positive.

This resulted in the governor of Songkhla taking extra measures (Intensive level) to conduct driver profile screening from those entering from Malaysia. Authorities will track individuals in Sadao District, Hat Yai, and Songkhla, requiring them to fill out a form if staying longer than 7 hours. Anything longer must be approved by the sheriff of Sadao on a case by case basis.

On August 8, 7:30 am, officials found 22 Myanmar workers hiding under a bridge next to a canal behind the new Sadao customs checkpoint, three of them had a high fever and were waiting to be smuggled into Thailand for a price of RM2,000.

Police chain suspects doors and windows until next morning

Published

on

Chachoengsao Province

On August 9, A man attacked an officer, took his gun, and fled to his house in Plang Yao District, Chachoengsao Province.  The officer then tried to persuade him to surrender for more than 6 hours but still failed.

Later at 6:00 pm, Plangyao Police Station decided to send 50 officers from a special operations unit in Chachoengsao Province.

The standoff lasted until 11:00 p.m. and the villain still showed no signs of surrendering.

So, they decided to chain his doors and windows preventing him from escaping until the next day rather than risk any of the officers or even the suspect’s life.

Meanwhile, the Royal Thai Police in Chachoengsao Province started to process a search warrant for the next morning after leaving a couple of police officers to watch the house.

Later, Col. Sonthaya revealed that the perpetrator was named Mr. Anon, 45, at the house in Tha Bunmi Subdistrict, Koh Chan District, Chonburi Province, who went into a drunken methamphetamine rampage and destroyed his neighbor’s ricefields.

Police tried to intervene but Mr. Anont took a gun from Officer Or Sor and ran away. Mr. Anon’s daughter also reported his unusual behavior saying he was showing signs of aggressive behavior telling officers to exercise caution especially since he had a gun.

Police hope he will surrender after bringing a search warrant after the drugs wear off. To be continued……..

Later, it was reported that the suspect had escaped through the back of his house prior to officers boarding up his doors and windows. Police then conducted a search of the house and did not find the stolen gun. Police are still searching for the armed and dangerous suspect now.
