Immigration police have apprehended an Australian citizen believed to be a member of the Hells Angels outlaw motorcycle gang, along with two Japanese men suspected of connections with the yakuza crime syndicate.
The 31-year-old Australian was arrested at a condominium located on Soi Thong Lor. Authorities discovered that he was wanted in Australia for 38 smuggling and firearms-related offenses. Interestingly, he initially presented an Italian passport upon his arrival in the country via a private plane. However, upon his arrest, the police found his actual Australian passport.
According to the police, the Australian individual holds a prominent position within the Hells Angels, an organization engaged in illicit activities such as drug trafficking and arms dealing.
The two Japanese men were taken into custody at a rented residence in the Phatthanakan area and are suspected to have ties with the yakuza syndicate. One of them has been charged with theft after allegedly stealing a maid’s mobile phone, which she had used to record their suspicious behavior at the house. The second individual has been charged with overstaying his visa.
Both Japanese men are sought after in Japan for offenses including drug-related crimes, physical assault, and robbery.
