Police have warned the public not to approach three prisoners who escaped from Pattaya Provincial Court on Monday afternoon.

 

American, Bart Allen Helmus, and Thai nationals, Sirinapha Wiset-rit and Noi or Ton Nilthes, were due to face drug charges following their arrest in July when they managed to escape.

 

Helmus is accused of stabbing a guard, while Noi, who was armed with a pistol, forced others guards to give them the keys to their shackles before fleeing in a Isuzu pick up.

 

The incident was captured on CCTV. 

 

 

Now police have launched a massive operation to locate the trio, who they describe as armed and dangerous. 

 

Police said they should not be approached by members of the public under any circumstances.

 

Police added that anyone harbouring the trio can expect to face the full force of the law.

 

Police added that they believe the net is tightening on the suspects, who they think are heading to the border with Cambodia. 

 

Police have set up roadblocks throughout Pattaya, Chonburi province and on multiple routes towards the border. Officers are also checking CCTV footage in Chaiyaphum, Korat and Prachinburi provinces. 

 

Both Thai immigration and the US Embassy have been updated on the situation.

 

Meanwhile, an investigation has been launched to ascertain how the prisoners came to be in possession and a knife and pistol.

 

According to STV Pattaya, the suspects have now charged with a further 5 offences including attempted murder.

 

Anyone with information as to the whereabouts of the three prisoners is urged to contact:

 

 Royal Thai Police Operations Center on 1599 or Pattaya police station 038-420-804.

Cross in Mae Sot to Burma via one of the 3 casinos where there are no checks in either direction.
