Wichit Police led by Lt Col Thammasan Bunsong and Lt Col Chatchai Chuuu arrested the two teens – a 17-year-old named only as “Dream” and his 13-year-old brother named only as “Deer” – at about 1pm on Thursday (Mar 4), said a report of the arrests.
Police had been looking for the pair since a Yamaha Mio was reported stolen about 3:10am on Feb 5, the report noted.

During questioning Dream admitted to stealing six motorbikes in total, including the Honda Dream and the Yamaha Mio.
His brother, Deer, was involved in four of the motorbike thefts, Dream admitted, said the report.
The pair were taken into custody while they were scouting for another motorbike to steal, the report added.
Wichit Police have yet to confirm the exact charges the two boys will face.
