Officers from the Crime Suppression Bureau have reportedly taken both the school teacher and the lottery vendor involved in the much publicised dispute over ownership of the November 1, 30-million-baht jackpot into custody.
Officers went to the school at which Preecha Kraikruan was working in the Kanchanaburi province to make the arrest following the issuing of an arrest warrant from Bangkok’s Ratchadapisek Criminal Court.
Both Preecha and the lottery vendor Rattanaporn Supathip are to be charged with allegedly giving false information concerning a criminal offence, giving information to an investigator about an offense they were aware had not been committed and finally supplying information with malicious intent.
Officers arrested Rattanaporn at a local market shortly after arresting the school teacher.
A press conference was scheduled to be held later this afternoon by the National Police Chief Chakthip Chaijinda to announce the findings of the investigation, however the arrest would suggest that the results of the investigation have determined that the retired police officer is the rightful owner of the lottery jackpot.
