They don't want to find him, simple as that.

His whereabouts are well known.. They just do not want to bring him here. I can not imagine the names he could drop that aided in his fleeing..

Aided his fleeing?   Huh?  He got on a plane, legally, and flew out before any arrest warrant was issued, he didn't need any help taking a legal, private flight.

Thai immigration officers have captured a wanted Colombian criminal in the busy city of Bangkok. This arrest was made possible because of a thorough joint operation with Malaysian authorities who were looking into a big theft case.

 

On May 31, 2024, a group of robbers hit the home of a prominent businessman in Kuala Lumpur and managed to steal items worth over 70 million baht. The bold robbery shocked the city, leading to quick action from the police.

 

Malaysian police identified eight suspects in this daring robbery. Seven of them were arrested successfully, but the one who planned the robbery eluded capture. This person is known as Mr. Lopez, a 30-year-old from Guatemala, who fled illegally across the border into Thailand.

 

Having received information that Mr. Lopez had arrived in Songkhla and was headed for Bangkok, Thai officers acted quickly and found him in a luxury hotel in Sukhumvit, an area of Khlong Toei, where they arrested him peacefully.

 

 

During questioning, he revealed his real name as Mr. Miguel, a 39-year-old Colombian citizen. As suspected, there was no record of him entering Thailand legally. He was unwilling to share any information about his criminal activities or his accomplices.

 

Further inquiries showed that Mr. Miguel had a criminal past. In 2010, he and his associates were part of a well-known gang of serial robbers. His name was red-flagged on Thailand Immigration Bureau’s watch list.

 

Mr. Miguel is now facing charges for entering Thailand illegally. The authorities are preparing to send him back to Malaysia, where he will face trial for his part in the massive theft.
