Officers led by Lt Col Nathapop Pongsapan of the Thalang Police arrested Adisak “Mamood” Homhuan, at a house in Moo 4 Pa Khlok on Saturday, police reported yesterday (June 2).

A second arrest warrant was issued on June 10, 2014 as Adisak had failed to present himself at Phuket Provincial Court to hear the charges against him.

On September 3, 2014, a third arrest warrant was issued for Adisak as he had again failed to present himself in court to face trial. He was subsequently sentenced in absentia to nine months’ imprisonment.

By December 26, 2014, yet another arrest warrant was issued for Adisak on charges of possession of a Category 1 drug (amphetamine) with intent to sell and illegal possession of firearms and ammunition, police noted in the their report, though it was not revealed whether this was a new charge.

On August 30, 2016, another warrant for Adisak’s arrest was issued for illegal possession of ammunition.

On November 18, 2016, another arrest warrant was issued against Adisak for possession of a Category 1 drug (amphetamine) with intent to sell.

On July 12, 2018, yet another arrest warrant was issued for Adisak – again for possession a Category 1 drug (amphetamine) with intent to sell and illegal possession of firearms and ammunition.

For the last four arrest warrants, it was not explained whether these were for fresh charges, or whether Adisak at any time had been arrested during police operations and later released.

Thalang Police yesterday also reported the arrest of Pornthip Suwankamnerd, 37, arrested at a residence in Moo 7 Thepkrasattri, Thalang.

The police report and associated charges seems like they were prepared by a 10 year old with ADHD and no professional experience. Anyway, good to have that miserable punk off the streets.  You can tell by looking at him that he will never be anything but a criminal, and will forever be a menace to society. And, why do you often pixilate the criminals face, but show clear shots of the cops?
