Korean men caught with “ICE” – also found to be on the run

It was found later that Sor was wanted on a warrant for being involved in the illegal sex trade while one had also been issued for Jeon for fraud.
The two men had been hiding out in Pattaya. They were attained and will be deported to Korea when the matter of their drug taking in Thailand is settled.
