3 inmates, one of them American, shoot policeman and flee

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.

Multiple Thai media sources have confirmed that Noi Ton Ninthet, a 41 year old escaped prisoner from the Pattaya Provincial Court who escaped with Bart Allen Helmus 39 years old and his Thai wife has been caught. During the escape a guard was stabbed and firearms were shot.

Ton surrendered in a dense forest near the Cambodia border in Sa Kaeo after being hunted by hundreds of police.

Bart Allen Helmus remains on the run.

I'm amazed they allowed him to surrender. That's gonna be a rough journey back to Pattaya!!

Died shortly after being captured? Hmmm... did the police just save the Pattaya Prosecutor a whole lot of work?

American shoots himself, wife as Pattaya fugitives recaptured
PUBLISHED : 6 NOV 2019 AT 16:57 Bangkok Post

An American prison escapee allegedly shot and wounded himself and his wife as police moved in and arrested them and the third Pattaya Court fugitive in Sa Kaeo province on Wednesday.

The fugitive trio's capture culminated a massive police manhunt launched after they escaped in chains from Pattaya Court on Monday afternoon, leaving a critically wounded police officer in their wake.

Satawat Hirunburana, the assistant to the national police chief, said one of the escapees, Noi Nilthes, had contacted police through his relatives and said he wanted to surrender, according to Jor Sor 100 radio.

He came out of hiding and gave himself up at a sugarcane plantation near the junction of Watthana Nakhon and Khao Chakhan districts in Sa Kaeo province.

Police later surrounded an area about one kilometre from where Mr Noi surrendered, intending to arrest the other two escapees, US national Bart Allen Helmus and his Thai wife Sirinapa Wisetrit.

Pol Lt Gen Satawat said Mr Helmus was under stress because of the hot weather and the three-month pregnancy of his wife. As police moved in, Mr Helmus used a pistol to shoot his wife and himself, he said.

Pol Lt Gen Satawat said police did not fire any shots at the couple during the operation to arrest them.

Mrs Sirinapa was reported wounded. Mr Helmus was said to be in a critical condition in the ICU of Khaochakhan Hospital.

The three escapees, who were facing trial on drug trafficking charges when they made their getaway, will be interrogated in Sa Kaeo before being taken back to Pattaya.

They fled the court in chains on Monday, severely wounding Pol Capt Thanamet Photipan as they dashed to short-lived freedom. An investigation is underway into how they obtained a handgun and knife used in the escape.

I can understand being stressed if his wife was 3 months pregnant, she was arrested 3 months and 3 weeks ago.

I stand corrected. I am surprised he is still alive. Genuinely.

Damn that was a bit of an anticlimax, too predictable!
If someone wanted to make a good movie out of this they would now have to go for the outsiders that enabled this to happen, lets start with a sequence that let a lone man guard the cells :director:
