Now for our update:
The Chinese suspect dubbed “Ku Aew” was arrested in November after a police probe found that he had been using another man’s Thai ID to camouflage his real nationality to operate an entertainment venue in Thailand.
Pattaya police believed Ku Aew was the real owner of Club One where hundreds of patrons pushed past inspecting police to evade illegal drug tests last month.
On December 4th, Pattaya police searched Ku Aew’s condominium building in the Naklua subdistrict of Chonburi’s Banglamung under search warrant No. 210/2022 issued by the Pattaya Provincial Court.
Police found a woman, 35-year-old Suwanna Tham-an, inside the condo. Suwanna was suspected to be Ku Aew’s girlfriend.
After an in-depth search, Pattaya police confiscated 40 assets such as an unregistered 11mm pistol, 43 11mm bullets, Thai banknotes worth 400,00 baht, Chinese banknotes, four passports, a white Toyota Estima sedan, and multiple other possessions.
Pattaya police stated that the suspect’s assets would be kept as evidence and that his girlfriend would be charged with illegal possession of firearms.
