SAMUI: -- A high profile drugs fugitive who fled the UK after being jailed for 15 years has been arrested by a successful police operation in Thailand.

Sounds like some brown envelopes were handed out in UK to enable yet another nasty bit of work to "flee" ... or is it just endemic incompetence on the part of British police and immigrations.

 

Reminds one of the recent ongoing saga of a "high profile" personage or two in Thailand that brought out all the TV armchair experts' accusations against & condemnations of the local authorities.

Normally i am the first person to condemn the RTP.

For once i am praising them, well done.

 

No people i am not having a meltdown, just giving credit where it is due.

 

Don't get too excited;  it just means he didn't bribe the right people.

There's nobody living on Koh Mudsum, think they mixed it up with Koh Taen that has a dozen of bungalows for rent.

Sent from my Lenovo TB3-710F using Thailand Forum - Thaivisa mobile app
 

The only aerial picture I found from Koh Mudsum shows PoorSucker is right (as usual:smile:) not a single house on this

tiny island.

Probably UK police "observers" over making sure he didn't slip off the hook leaving a big brown envelope behind.

The most stupid thing to do when you are on the run is to hide on a tiny island.

Just Methinks!

Yup - that's how we got Harry Roberts back in the day; parked off in a wood. Not the best of hideouts when you want to maintain anonymity (although to be fair, it took a while to find him..)

Yep, 96 days and I remember coppers everywhere. 1966 seems a long time ago.

No need to praise the Thai police Since it is international the want to keep their uniforms pressed so to speak . Locals be damed

 

Prime example is the fugitive "Red Bull Heir" and the old woman who what beaten buy a gang of half brains

 

So far the police have been useless

Jealous that he made a lot more bucks than you ? But just think, he certainly had bigger balls than most of you also !

Sorry Colin, but the information came from the UK police who have obviously been keeping tabs on the family, so RTP didn't find him per se.

Fair play to them though for following the son back to Samui for the arrest.

I expect he will serve some time for the stolen passport and then he can look forward to a longer sentence back home.

Yes - for once they were a bit "pro active"
