Bangkok police arrest Australian Hell’s Angel on drug charges
by Mark Kelly October 29, 2019
Thai police said Monday they have arrested an Australian HellsAngels gang member who is wanted on drug charges in Western Australia.
Police say they arrested Luke Anderson on Thursday after meeting with Australian Embassy officials on the problem of outlaw motorbike gangs. They say they have revoked his visa and will deport him.
“We have informed the Australians and they have sent officials to escort him from Thailand to face charges in Australia,” said police Maj. Gen. Archayon Kraithong, commander of the Immigration Bureau’s Division 3. “We believe that he probably has more than one outstanding arrest warrant.”
Police told reporters at a news conference in Bangkok that the arrest warrant dated back to 2017, but gave no details. They said he had been living with his Thai girlfriend in Pattaya, a coastal city notorious for crime and corruption.
According to a Thai police press release, Anderson has been arrested more than 20 times in Australia on a number of charges, including possession of illegal weapons and drugs.
An officer also confirmed that Anderson had been involved in a violent assault on two Thai brothers in Pattaya in September 2016, along with two other Australian motorbike gang members.
“Several years ago, he committed a crime by assaulting a Thai national,” said Archayon. He said Anderson is also suspected of “involvement in illegal trafficking of drugs and weapons, using Thailand as a meeting place, as a base to arrange activities in Australia. We consider him a dangerous person.”
