Briton wanted for extradition caught

Thailand is Cambodia's neighbor to the West, and this forum is dedicated to Thai news, stories, reviews, blogs, videos, Thai people and anything else related to the country. A lot of expats have both lived and worked in Cambodia and Thailand, and this area is a place to discuss all aspects of life in Thailand and what's going on there. Most topics are about Bangkok and Pattaya because of their larger populations of expatriates and tourists in those cities, but this is for all things Thai.

Briton wanted for extradition caught

Post by Anthony's Weiner »

CHON BURI: A 31-year-old Briton wanted for extradition on drug charges has been caught in Pattaya beach town.

Crime Suppression Division police arrested Mark Rumble, a British national, at a house in Phattra Village housing estate in tambon Nong Prue, Bang Lamung district, on Friday.

Pol Col Arun Wachirasrisukanya, superintendent of CSD sub-division 2, said the British Embassy in Bangkok had asked the Foreign Ministry to help track down Mr Rumble, a suspected drug agent involved in many narcotics offences in his country, following information the man had fled to Thailand.

CSD investigators found the man had entered Thailand on Oct 11 and was allowed to stay until Nov 9. They then tracked the suspect down to the house in Pattaya.

During the interrogation, the British suspect denied all charges. He accused his former Thai wife of filing the drug charges against him after he broke up with her due to frequent quarrels.

Police pressed charges against him based on the arrest warrant before sending him to the Criminal Court for further action.
