Thai police conducted raids on five significant hideouts in connection with the murder of Jesada, also known as Tai Kolai, at the Lasalle intersection. Arrest warrants for two additional suspects have been issued, with heavy charges against them.

The incident involved 23 people on a motorcycle who lured Woraset, known as Hurt, and Jesada out of a restaurant, leading to Jesada’s fatal shooting by another group at the Lasalle-Bearing intersection in Bang Na, Bangkok. The police have been actively investigating the case today, July 3, and a crucial breakthrough occurred.

Deputy Commissioner of the Metropolitan Police Bureau Nopasilp Poolsawas, alongside Investigation Division Chief Theeradej Thammasuthee, instructed a team to gather evidence and collaborate with Bang Na Police Station investigators. Subsequently, the Phra Khanong Criminal Court issued arrest warrants for Natthawut, known as Lek, and Danai.

The charges include conspiracy involving five or more people to commit premeditated murder, attempted premeditated murder, possession of firearms without permission, and discharging firearms in public without reason.

Investigators linked the suspects to the crime through witness statements and CCTV footage. The escape route of the culprits was meticulously tracked. After the murder, the suspects fled on motorcycles, with one Honda Wave i being identified. The group split up, with one suspect riding into Soi Bearing, then into Soi Dan Samrong, and finally parking at a condominium in Samrong Nuea, Mueang District, Samut Prakan Province, reported KhaoSod.

Earlier today, police executed search warrants at five key locations in the Samrong Nuea area. The raids aimed to uncover more evidence and possibly apprehend additional suspects. After the searches, the police plan to hold a press conference to disclose further details about the case and the arrests made.

In related news, a fugitive passport forgery mastermind who had been on the run from Chinese authorities has been apprehended in Bangkok’s upscale Sathorn district. Police revealed the arrest of the suspect, known only as Chun, in a late-night raid at a condominium on Suan Phlu Road.
