Legal action has been taken against four people who removed beer cans from the scene after a truck carrying boxes of beer overturned in Phuket on January 11.
A logistics company representative filed a report with police after more than 80,000 beer cans, valued at more than Bt2 million, mysteriously “vanished” after the truck overturned in Rassada.
Phuket City police chief Colonel Sompong Thiparpakun said on Monday: “Four people have now been arrested. They have admitted that they saw other people taking beer cans, so they did so too. They say they have consumed the contents of all the beer cans.
“If evidence can be provided that other people also took these beer cans and sold them, legal action will be taken against them too. It was illegal to remove these items from the crash scene.”
