Sitthichai Rernyindee was wanted under an arrest warrant issued by the Central Juvenile and Family Court in July 2016, and was finally brought to the court on Tuesday morning.
Sitthichai caught the attention of police offers on a crime prevention patrol as he “walked suspiciously” to try to avoid them around the junction of Sukhumvot Sois 13 and 15 on Monday night. The suspect was taken to a police station for question after an initial search failed to find any illegal items.
After a search of the criminal database that discovered the warrant, Sitthichai was arrested and taken to Bang Khen Police Station.
Sitthichai reportedly confessed to joining others in stealing a motorcycle in front of a condominium in Bang Khen on the night of February 14, 2015 before fleeing.
The suspect later underwent cosmetic surgery and changed lifestyles to avoid being recognised by police, and then went to work in the Sukhumvit area.
