A combined team of police and officials from several units arrested 76 people – 22 teenagers and 54 adults – and seized 70 modified motorcycles in areas under the jurisdiction of Metropolitan Police Division 9, said Maj Gen Nithithorn Jintakanon, commander of the Traffic Police Division, during a media briefing at Tha Kham police station.
All racers were asked to take urine tests and none tested positive for illicit drugs. They were taken to the police station to have their offences put on records before being freed.
The creator of “Hippocing Prathetnon’’ Facebook page, Chaithawat Preepradit, 23, was also caught in a separate operation.
Mr Chaithawat, whose page had more than 300 followers, encouraged teenagers to take part in street racing on public roads in Bangkok and surrounding provinces. Each race was streamed live on his Facebook page.
The man has been charged with supporting street racers on public streets and his Facebook page closed, said Maj Gen Nithithorn.
