The Phuket Provincial Deputy Commander Col Sermpan Sirikong says, “Chalong Police and the Phuket City Police are checking CCTV footage from where suspects broke through the checkpoint in Rassada.”

“Police already know that there were three men in the car as well as the name of the car’s owner. The car had been driving around Rassada Nusorn Road before breaking through the checkpoint and speeding away.”

“They rammed police cars and motorbikes a number of times and we had to open fire on the car’s tyres to try and stop them causing any more damage to property or people.”

“We found weapons and ammunition connected to the car and the passengers after locals helped us find the abandoned sedan.”

“We are hunting for these three male suspects to face legal action as soon as possible.”
