A Krabi policeman has ridden with a local big biker, chasing and shooting at a pick-up after a hit and run incident.

Ao Lueak Police Chief Col Kritsanat Wongklaharn in Krabi says, “At 10am we were notified from Phang Nga Police that a pickup truck had fled to Krabi after a hit and run in Phang Nga.”

“After that Ao Lueak Police in Krabi set up a checkpoint to stop the pickup truck. The pickup truck broke though the checkpoint at Na Nuea in Krabi on Petkasem Road.”

“A volunteer big bike rider who saw the incident asked police to jump on his Big Bike. They set off after the pickup truck with other police in tow.”

“Police fired a shot at the pickup truck’s front wheel but the pickup truck kept going. Following a few more warning shots, police eventually stopped the pickup on Southern Seaboard Road in Krabi.”

“The 21 year old suspect Kietisak Srisaema, who sustained minor injuries in the incident, has been arrested. He came up ‘positive’ in a drug test. He told us that he had had an argument with his wife before the incident.”

Man injured, chicken dead after explosion of oil tank in Krabi | The Thaiger

A man has been injured at an exhausted pipes shop in the main town of Krabi.

Police and rescue workers arrived to find an incinerated 200 litre gasoline tank in front of the shop.

Nearby they found a dead chicken and 42 year old Chockchai Theptawee who had sustained injuries including burns on his legs and face. He was taken to Krabi Hospital.

Mr Chockchai told Police that a customer asked him to drill an empty oil tank to install a faucet. The customer confirmed to Mr Chockchai that there was no oil left in the oil tank as the tank has already been cleaned.

Mr Chockchai used iron cutting equipment to drill the tank. But, surprise, suddenly the tank exploded and caught fire.

RIP the chicken.

“I have two clothes shops in Ao Nang. A similar incident has happened several times. At this shop it’s already happened three times. Every time I have reported to police but they can’t find the thieves.”

“Other shop sellers have also facing similar kinds of incident. An iPhone 10 has also been stolen.”

Yesterday 21 year old Saharat Jewsakun, a crew on a ferry, filed a report to police after a male foreign tourist stole his bag which contained an ATM card and 5,000 Baht cash. CCTV cameras recorded the incident.

LT Col Attapong Sanejaiwut of the Krabi Tourist Police says, “Most tourists are planning these thefts in pairs. One of them will talk with a shop seller while the other will steal an item.”
