That's impressive. well done BIB.

How about Boss next. 


Never thought I'd see this opinion about Pattaya police. 

'The arrest operation was a collaborative effort between Thai police and Interpol in South Korea.' 

It's more likely that someone managed to fill in an Interpol request & Korean cops did the rest.  The Red Bull brat's Interpol form has been delayed so many times, it's almost like some one in RTP is deliberately messing up the process.

Gold shops are too tempting, and should be shut down; every time a Thai female friend comes close to one they lose their minds. Oh, and I've heard anecdotes that robbers like them too.
