Pressure is building on a husband and wife team of thieves and fraudsters known as the "Robbers Holding a Dog".

 

A police raid on their house succeeded only in uncovering millions of baht in evidence.

 

The occupants had fled.

 

As reported last week the modus operandi of the thieves was to trick people in shops and businesses into leaving them alone with their valuables.

 

They often held a dog or a even a small child. When victims were distracted they stole their property.

 

There are 44 known victims of the couple after a 15 year spree of crime in Bangkok and surrounding areas.

 

The value of the couple's thieving is believed to be more than 20 million baht.

 

A raid on their up-market house in Pak Kret yielded two cars one a Toyota Fortuner and a total of 137 items including 55 phones, pawn tickets for gold, 18 ID cards, ten credit cards and ATM cards and 55 designer bags.

 

But the suspects had fled.

 

They are Apichart Bunreuang, 42, and his wife Thiyata, 38, who is also known as Usa Ketmanee.

 

Now top brass policeman Pol Gen Chalerkiat Sriworakhan is demanding that the fraudsters be found and their crime spree is brought to a close.

 

Earlier reports suggest they might have fled across the border to Cambodia to lie low while the heat is on.

...or UK, which seems to be a haven for Thai criminals.

That seems like fair, after the fact they have been free to do this for over 15 years.

So; it took 15 years for a Senior Copper to become interested.   Presumably up until now he and his Subordinate's have done nothing about the complaints of at least 44 victims of these copycat crimes.    Kinda get the feeling he has only become very interested since they found millions in cash in an empty house and that money needs 'looking after' !

So three confirmed shakedowns per year... big deal.

This is chicken feed compared to what civil servants get away with like those thieving lowlife scammers who stole from the elderly and disabled.
