On 3 August Udon Police arrested Jean de Saint Facond Banollbango, age 43, and Ampelly Alex, age 41, both from Cameroon after a Japanese tourist reported he was cheated out of 50,000 on a diamond purchase.
The Japanese man, Mimatsu Reijiro, filed a complaint with police after he was cheated out of 50,000 in the purchase of a diamond(s). When Mr. Reijiro went to pick up his diamond(s) on the designated date, 11 July, the two men were nowhere to be found.
After police were notified, they coordinated with Tourist Police and Immigration officials and issued warrants for the two individuals and eventually arrested them.
Mr. Banollbango was arrested at his girlfriend’s home in amphur Kut Chap.
A police colonel said the circumstances of the alleged scam are still confusing and require further investigation. One of the suspects (Mr. Alex) admitted he was part of a gang dealing in counterfeit dollars. However, Mr. Banollbango said that the money was for a diamond purchase. Police will continue their investigation.
Mr. Banollbango has visited Thailand often and has a history of frequently entering/exiting Malaysia and Indonesia as well.

Udon Thani Police Crack “Love” Gang

Udon Thani Police announced the arrest of the “Love” gang (I’m not making that up) that stole more than 30 motorcycles. The kids, ages 12, 13, 13, and 14, had the word ‘love’ tattooed on their arms/legs. The kids were all from Amphur NaGlang, in Nongualamphu Province.

Udon Thani Police Catch Motorcycle thieves

Police were notified by a citizen that the gang members were riding around dirt roads near the ring road at Ban Leum, Udon. Once apprehended, the kids told the police they did not attend school and starting hanging around together. Before long, they longed for a motorcycle. After traveling to Udon by bus, they stole snacks from stores and slept under a railroad overpass.

One of the gang members had a master key that was used to steal the vehicles. Gang members would steal a motorcycle, hide it, and later drive it to NaGlang. According to the gang members, they did it for fun. The gang admitted to stealing more than 30 motorcycles. When the police went to the gang’s hiding place (for motorcycles), they found seven motorcycles.

The police suspect that the vehicles were perhaps exchanged for money or drugs. The police are investigating that someone else is behind the gang (my words: someone older), as they know that if the kids are caught, they will be released before long and not detained.
