The two men – Charoenphan Bootsri, 40, and Surasak Baoloi, 29 – were arrested yesterday (June 30), explained Maj Suchart Chumphusaeng of the Patong Police.

Charoenphan was arrested at 1am yesterday after police found him riding a motorbike in Patong while wearing the same shirt that he was seen wearing in CCTV footage showing him stealing a motorbike that had previously been reported to police, Maj Suchart said.

Surasak Baoloi, 29, was arrested at a house in Kathu, he added.

Working together, Charoenphan usually chose a target motorbike and moved it away from where it was parked. Surasak would then connect a battery and jumpstart the motorbike before they rode it away.
