4 inmates escaped from a prison in northern Thailand’s Phetchabun Province early this morning. So far, 1 inmate has been caught, but 3 more inmates are still enjoying their freedom.
The prison break was first reported around 3 am, says local police.
Police and prison officials immediately set out to reincarcerate the escaped inmates. Local police stations were also notified to help capture the escapees.
Then, around 3 after the escapees were first reported missing, 35 year old Vacharin Chanboon was reportedly captured. Thai media says that Vacharin was found hiding in a school in Muang district. It was not reported if he was using the time to brush up on academic pursuits or was merely seeking refuge from his pursuers.
The remaining 3 escapees are still at large. They are 40 year old Pataradanai Suesiridamrong,, 21 year old Krisda Kongkhao, and 18 year old Thanadol Tantivanicharoen.
