Brian Russell Finn, 54, and his son Luke, 24, were detained by immigration officers at about 10:30pm, and handed over to the Kathu Police, who were waiting for them.
“They were wanted on a warrant of arrest issued on November 27, 2013. The warrant says they were wanted for cheating on a food-and beverage-bill,” said Kathu Police investigator Suthichai Tienpo.
The warrant detailed that the alleged cheating on the bill occurred at The Blue Marine Resort and Spa, Phra Baramee Road, in Patong, at 3pm on September 5, 2013, he added.
“Both of them accepted that they were same persons wanted on the arrest warrant, but they denied the complaint,” Lt Col Suthichai said.
Mr Finn and son were both taken to Kathu Police Station for questioning.
