Cases in Samut Prakan and Rayong were noted.
When: January 4th, 2021
What: Police are asking for help from the public in reporting a vehicle registration forgery scheme that has hit multiple provinces.
The issue was brought to the attention of various agencies after speeding tickets were issued without the car owner actually being in the area where the fine was issued. The victim and owner of the car received the ticket and reported it to authorities, showing their alibi that they were not in the area where the speeding took place.
The criminals are forging the plates and putting them on vehicles to avoid detection for other criminal activities. According to the report, they could include drug smuggling and other higher level offenses.
The report notes cases in Samut Prakan and Rayong. If this happens to you, contact police and they will follow up with special attention to the matter.
