Chalong Police Chief Col Paksayot Thanongsak led other four officers to arrest the fugitive, Niran Noonui, 29, at the restaurant, which police did not name, on Luan Por Chuang Rd at 12:50pm.

Niran, from Tha Pea District in Satun, was wanted for shooting dead Sakon Nanoree, 58, in Tambon Kuan Por, Chalung District, Satun, on Sept 6, 2015, police explained.

He was formally charged with murder and illegally carrying a firearm at Satun Provincial Court on Oct 8, 2015.

At the restaurant yesterday, Niran admitted to police that he was the suspect they were looking for, noted Chalong Police in their report of Niran’s arrest.
