A daring escape took place yesterday at Sattahip Police Station when a suspect was whisked away by an accomplice, leaving police scrambling for clues. The suspect, who had been apprehended for stealing alcohol from a local mall, managed to flee the scene with the help of a man on a motorcycle.

At 1.52pm, the Chief of Sattahip Police Station in Chon Buri, Thanapol Klin Kesor, received a report about the dramatic escape. The man, described as being between 35 and 40 years old with blond hair, a short back and sides haircut, and a moustache, rode a black Honda motorcycle with an unknown license plate.

He entered the police station under the pretence of being a relative of 20 year old Naranya Areepong, the suspect accused of theft, and managed to help her escape just as she was about to be questioned by investigators.

Earlier that day, at 10.50am, Naranya had been caught by security guards at a Sattahip department store while attempting to steal two bottles of foreign alcohol, valued at 2,025 baht. The guards detained her and handed her over to the police, who then brought her to the Sattahip Police Station for further investigation and evidence collection.

While waiting outside the station, Naranya was approached by the man on the motorcycle. Claiming to be a relative, he asked to speak with her briefly. Seizing the opportunity, Naranya quickly jumped onto the motorcycle, and the duo sped away from the scene, heading towards Pattaya.

Police officers immediately launched a pursuit, coordinating with nearby stations to set up roadblocks and track the fugitives. Despite their efforts, the pair managed to evade capture. Investigators are now reviewing CCTV footage from the area, hoping to identify and locate the suspects.

The department store has officially filed a complaint against Naranya for theft, and police are urging anyone with information about the two Sattahip suspects to come forward. As the search continues, police are focusing on identifying the man on the motorcycle, whose actions facilitated Naranya’s escape, reported KhaoSod.
