gas station bandit caught

Yisan and highway police in Samut Songkhram apprehended a pickup truck driver accused of repeatedly fleeing gas stations without paying across three provinces. The suspect, identified only as 32-year-old Mr. Natthawut, was arrested after a series of gas thefts.

The incident leading to his capture occurred on June 16th at 8:30 AM when Natthawut drove his modified pickup truck to a gas station on Rama 2 Road in Samut Songkhram. After filling up, he allegedly sped off without paying, injuring an employee who clung to the truck in an attempt to stop him. The employee fell and sustained an arm injury.

Police traced Natthawut’s mobile signal to his residence in Mueang, Samut Songkhram, and obtained an arrest warrant from the Samut Songkhram Provincial Court. When officers arrived at his home, they found a white pickup truck with a changed license plate. Natthawut initially resisted arrest, trying to escape by jumping into a canal and fleeing into a nearby forest.

Despite his efforts, the police eventually captured Natthawut. At Yisan police station, he confessed to fleeing from gas stations in Ratchaburi, Samut Sakhon, and Samut Songkhram on six occasions between June 6th and June 16th. He was charged with theft using a vehicle, evading police, and causing physical and mental harm to another person. Further legal actions will be taken by police officers from Bang Torad, Ban Phaeo, and Pak Tho police stations.
