Thai police arrest Hells Angels members
THAILAND: Thai police have arrested four members of a Hells Angels biker gang accused of drug crimes, violence and posing a threat to society, the Tourist Police said on Thursday.
Three Australians and a Canadian were arrested on Wednesday in Pattaya, a major tourist resort with a reputation as a hub for foreign gangs, drug dealing and the sex industry.
Piyapong Ensarn of the Pattaya Tourist Police told Reuters that two of the accused gang members would be deported and the two others would be charged with drug offences. “Traces of cocaine were found on them,” he said. Reuters was unable to contact either the accused or their lawyers for comment. Pattaya is 100 kilometers southeast of the Thai capital, Bangkok. — Reuters
