An alleged Singaporean hacker who was using a fake passport and a Thai woman were arrested in Bangkok with illegal drugs, according to Thai law enforcement.
The Central Investigation Bureau (CIB) Police told the press yesterday (January 12th) that they have arrested MR. ONG JIAN ZHEN, 32, Singaporean national. Police also arrested Ms. Anayaluck Chuenjai, 28, at a condominium in the Huai Khwang district.
Seized from them were 1.5 grams of crystal methamphetamine, 1.4 grams of Ketamine, and 0.8 grams of Erimin 5. Both were also facing charges of illegal possession of drugs.
The arrest came after the CIB Police was contacted from the Criminal Investigation Department, Singapore Police Force, to find Mr. ONG in Thailand. He reportedly hacked social media accounts for online sales in Singapore which had many victims report to police in Singapore.
On October 26th, 2022 he was arrested by Thai Immigration Officers for using a fake passport. He was temporarily released on bail but skipped his court appearances and vanished. An arrest warrant was issued for him from the Sakaeo Provincial Court on December 19th, 2022 for using a fake passport.
Ong is likely to be extradited to Singapore after facing legal charges in Thailand.
