After receiving regular complaints about popped tyres since January, police took to the streets as undercover garbage men and spotted a woman drive by on a motorcycle and spill screws on Phra Pokkhlao Road, which leads to Hua Hin train station.

Officers arrested the woman, identified as Kesarin Channiem. According to police, Kesarin said her husband’s tyre business had fallen on hard times, and that the screws were an effort to bring in more customers.

Police have charged Kesarin with damaging property, and urged other motorists affected by the screws to come forward and press charges.
