UK Drugs Baron arrested by Thai cops on Samui

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.

have to wonder if the police were offered a reward to do this job. normally they just issue an arrest warrant and wait for the crim to hand themselves in.

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.

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.

Some people need to go to Specsavers.....

 

Look at Google earth. The island has many bungalows as well as a hotel.

 

 

 

Yes, I can see that, totally encroachment.

Wasn't there last time I was there.

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..)
