The pair were arrested in accordance with arrest warrant numbers 102/2556 and 127/2556 issued by the Sukothai Provincial Court. The warrants state the pair are accused of committing crimes using stolen vehicles.

Police Major General Katcha, the Chonburi Provincial Police Commander, held a press conference on Thursday to announce the arrest of the two men who are accused of renting cars and disguising the license plates using grey colored film placed inside the license plate holders.

The pair allegedly visited foreign exchange booths in the Northern Province and stole an unspecified amount of money.
