Kanchanaburi native Sonthaya was arrested at a resort in Song Phee Nong district of Suphanburi after an informant notified the police. 

Sonthaya was involved in phoning relatives of people to claim that they had been involved in accidents and needed money to be transferred to help them out. 

He had already been prosecuted for such scamming but had not learned his lesson, said Daily News, mentioning there were several warrants out for his arrest. 

Thaivisa notes that the operations of the tourist police in Thailand stretch beyond matters involving visitors to the kingdom.
