A 67-year-old American drug suspect, who had been living under the identity of another person for more than 25 years, was arrested in Chiang Mai this week.

The Thai Immigration Bureau identified the suspect as Bruce McIntire. He has been on the run for 25 years with false ID and living in Thailand for six years.

Officers were notified by the American Embassy that a man named “Mr Thomas” who shared similar facial features with McIntire, submitted an application for a new passport. Officers found that his name already existed on another passport.

McIntire has now admitted he used fake documents to get a bogus passport through a Nigerian passport forgery gang. He then used his fake passport in the name of “Mr Thomas” to apply for a passport renewal.
