Limo driver returns B200,000 in “lost luggage’ | The Thaiger

PHUKET: Airport limousine driver Prateep Seeponnok has been commended for returning almost 200,000 baht worth of cash and goods to their Norwegian owner who had left them in his car.

K. Prateep, accompanied by Phuket Vice-Governor Worapot Rattasima and Tourist Police officers, returned the forgotten luggage to Rolf Bernharn Knobloch yesterday.

K. Prateep told the Gazette that, “At 10 pm on January 29 I drove Mr Knobloch from Phuket International Airport to Patong. After I dropped Mr Knobloch off at The Royal Paradise Hotel, I didn’t realize that he had left his bag in my car, so I drove off and parked beside a shop on the way to my house.

“It was then that I saw a bag, very similar to the car’s interior color and easy to miss, behind the front seat. So I called the Tourist Police and reported it as lost property.”

K. Prateep said he turned the money in because it was the right thing to do, and because he was afraid of being arrested if he kept it.

Inside the bag Tourist Police found two smaller bags containing a brown wallet, a black zip wallet with 658 baht, a passport, 87,000 baht in cash, two airplane tickets, a Visa credit card, a bank card, a European travel insurance card, a Nokia mobile phone and charger, three pens and Norwegian kroner equal to 92,000 baht.

Tourist Police contacted Mr Knobloch and made arrangements to return his luggage.

Mr Knobloch was very appreciative and thanked K. Prateep and the Tourist Police.

K. Prateep was given 1,000 baht as a reward for his honesty.

Legal action has already been taken against four people who ‘removed’ beer cans after a truck carrying boxes of beer cans overturned in Phuket on January 11.

A logistic company representative has filed a report with police after more than 80,000 beer cans, valued at more than two million baht, mysteriously “vanished” after the truck overturned in Rassada.

The Phuket City Police Chief Col Sompong Thiparpakun says, “Four people have now been arrested. They have admitted that they saw other people taking beer cans, so they did too. They say they have consumed the contents of all beer cans. ”

“If evidence can be provided that other people took these beer cans and sold them, legal action will be taken against them too.”

“It was illegal to remove these items from the crash scene.”

UPDATE: Response to Rabies zone in Chalong | The Thaiger

‘Following the earlier reported rabies incident in Chalong, the Soi Dog Foundation yesterday (Friday, January 18) teamed up with The DLD and Chalong OBT to carry out vaccinations in the area the infected dog was discovered.

Jointly, the team was successful in vaccinating 128 dogs in a swift response to what is hoped to be an isolated case.

Working alongside the Chalong OBT and DLD, they carried out a door-to-door exercise, alerting local residents of the specific area in order to perform precautionary vaccinations of their pets, as well as street dogs in the vicinity.

Soi Dog Foundation, along with the Chalong Public Health Representative and DLD Representative, Dr.Suthat, are keen to urge the public that this is not an outbreak and are hopeful that it is an isolated incident.

However, as a further measure to ensure this remains as such, the team will continue with the rabies vaccination program on Monday, January 21.’
