Small fish. When you start arresting the really big fish then it will become newsworthy.

Surprising how so much happens in such a small place.

All these 7 persons, were they registered as being living at Kamala/Rassada on Phuket? Or are they among the 200,000 non registered thai?  Remember? National Security.

Good work, keep these worthless urchins off the streets.  They do nothing but harm the community and ruin lives.
