8 Crocodiles Found in Apartment after Police Called for Disturbance

The suspect demanded 10,000 baht to return home.

Graffiti on the wall. What a pig sty.

When: December 10th, 2020

Where: Bang Phun subdistrict, Pathum Thani province

Perpetrators: Mr. Thassapong, 38

Victims: 8 crocodiles and the room

What: Police were called to a 9-story dormitory in Pathum Thani after the landlord received complaints about disturbances from a room on the 8th floor. The police arrived and entered the room and found Mr. Thassapong in a frenzy. He demanded police give him 10,000 baht so he could return home. He damaged the room, defacing the walls and burning furniture, and police had a hard time getting him to calm down.

Upon further inspection, authorities found 8 crocodiles that the frenzied man was raising in the room. Police also found marijuana. The landlord said the tenant had only been living in the room for a month, without knowing where he came from or where he worked. He’s being taken in for psychological examination and drug testing.
