Cabau originally entered Thailand back in 2013 on a fake passport. He was arrested and blacklisted in 2015 after the French wanted him for bank robbery and high level involvement in the drug trade.

He was deported but found his way back to Thailand last September. He had changed his name and passport and sneaked in through Sadao on the Malaysian border, reported Thai Rath.

Surachate was able to ascertain that the man living in Bo Phut was in fact Cabau before ordering his capture on Tuesday.

He will now be deported again.
