Apiwat Kanthawong, of Lampang, was arrested at a post office in Lampang Muang District and charged with falsifying official documents and putting false information into a computer system, said Maj Gen Panurat Lakboon, Deputy Commissioner of Bangkok’s Metropolitan Police Bureau during a media briefing yesterday (Aug 10).

Seized from the suspect’s house were several rolls of Chinese-made films bearing the Land Transport Department seal watermark used exclusively by the department, many fake official documents such as identification cards, driving licences and title deeds. About 1,000 items used in producing false documents were also seized.

The officers then extended the investigation, which led to the arrest of Mr Apiwat, said Maj Gen Panurat.

The suspect had used Facebook page and Line chat application to advertise his services, which include faking ID cards, driving licences, car registration booklets and car tax documents.

Pol Maj Watcharin Oumfung, investigation chief at the Metropolitan Police Division 6, said Mr Apiwat confessed to faking official documents for over 10 years. He had more than 1,000 customers.
