Three escaped inmates recaptured in Chumphon | News by Samui TimesPolice said the three hid on a mountain in a forest near by Huay Kla village in Tambon Tako in Chumphon’s Sawi district for two days.

They went down to the village for food at 6am on Saturday and were captured. Villagers heard dog barking near the foot of the mountain and alerted troops who arrested them.

They were identified as Chanatip Permlarp, Pichet Klin-ocha, and Krissada Kaewnuis.

The men escaped after they arrived at court and were waiting to be taken inside the building. They stole the truck that transported them from prison after the keys were apparently left in the ignition. They crashed through the gates at the court to escape.

The three will face more charges of breaking free from a prison, robbing an official vehicle and contempt of court.
