Thai immigration police working with the department of Homeland Security Investigations of the USA have announced the arrest of a man who had been hiding out in Hua Hin. 
 
Named only as Derick, 48, he was reportedly on overstay in Thailand of nearly 2,000 days. 
 
He was wanted in America in the state of Virginia on charges related to the supply of weapons and marijuana. 
 
Naew Na described him as a dangerous individual with a prior rap sheet that included threatening to use explosives, theft, burglary and drugs and weapons violations in Virginia and North Carolina. 
 
It was found that he had come to Thailand in September 2014 and never left.
 
Biometrics played a part in his capture.

Daily News also announced the results of two other cases handled by the immigration police. 
 
Also in Hua Hin two men were arrested following a scam in which one posed as a bank employee on Facebook to obtain account details of 12 victims. 
 
Worawat, 29, stole more than 300,000 baht between June and August this year. His accomplice Karn, 24, was paid 1,000 baht a time to get the stolen money out of ATMs.

How? Fingerprints? His body odour?

 

“Examples include, but are not limited to fingerprint, palm veins, face recognition, DNA, palm print, hand geometry, iris recognition, retina and odour/scent. Behavioral characteristics are related to the pattern of behavior of a person, including but not limited to typing rhythm, gait, and voice.[6][note 2] Some researchers have coined the term behaviometrics to describe the latter class of biometrics.”

 

Above quote from https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Biometrics

 

The word is bandied around often without explanation.

Of course biometrics played a part. Which part?

 

Nothing... But they have to add that line to everything these days..

Probably trying to lay the groundwork for when the massive corruption in the contract is uncovered :)

If the guy is on a 2000 day overstay, I can't imagine he decided to leave the country and be subjected to biometrics.  So just how did biometrics play a part in his capture?

They caught him.

 

Scanned his finger prints.

 

Then scanned them again and they matched.

I didn't see any mention of this in the report.  Do you have some insight as to how they randomly found this guy and decided to scan his fingerprints?

I think it is time that Thaivisa DEMAND that from now on Thai immigration and other police departments publish the detailed investigation report after each arrest, because they OWE this to Thaivisa members.

 

Even better they should DEMAND that each Thaivisa member should receive such a detailed report in the post

Only if its  in carton form though and I need a  bigger  colour  poster than the one they have.

I"m thinking that this guy didn't had to worry for any of the TM variety for 2000 days and even saved himself paying penalty for overstaying his welcome, but, as they say, all good things must come to an end...
