Pattaya police confirmed that one of the five suspects who are still on the loose is Mr. Jirarot “Rang” Wattana. He allegedly forced his way into the rental room at a pool villa with other gunmen before being captured in CCTV footage while leaving the villa in a white T-shirt with a number 33 on the back. Rang is known to law enforcement with a previous criminal history which is how he was identified by police.
The identified suspect is on an arrest warrant for possessing firearms without a permit, carrying weapons into public areas, trespassing, physically assaulting others, colluding to detain others, and destroying others’ properties.
Assistant national police chief Pol. Maj. Gen. Surachet or “Big Joke” visited the incident scene and inspected the CCTV footage with Pattaya police yesterday, October 18th.
Thanks to the footage, Big Joke said he knew the identities of all five suspects already who are reportedly an organized criminal group, though he did not reveal them to the press. He stated that he needed only two more days to capture the gunmen, and he praised Pattaya police for their hard work.
