A Burmese suspect has broken free from a detention room at a police station in Songkhla today where he was detained pending a human trafficking investigation.

Police say 27 year old Zaw Win somehow unlocked the padlock on the detention cell at the Bang Klam police station in Bang Klam district at about 7am this morning.

A security camera showed Zaw Win with a damaged leg limping out of the police station. Zaw Win was sent from Bangkok to be detained at the police station on Wednesday.

He was suspected of being involved with a human trafficking ring that smuggled Rohingya into Thailand before they would be smuggled further to Malaysia.

Zaw Win was arrested in Bangkok after 14 Rohingya were found hiding in a forest in Moo 6 village in Tambon Tha Chang in Bang Klam district on January 1. Police conduced an investigation and said Zaw Win was a suspected member of the gang and police later learned that he was hiding in Bangkok.
