KRABI: -- An American teacher at an international school in Krabi province wanted by the US drug enforcement agency for narcotic trafficking charge was arrested today in the southern tourist town.

 

The arrest followed request made to the Royal Thai Police commissioner by the US Embassy in Bangkok to locate the suspect, Mr Alexander Jonathan Rosen, and arrest him for drug charges after US tracking revealed he escaped into Thailand.

 

Upon request by the US, checking of his enter and leave record by the Immigration Bureau showed he entered Thailand seven times in the past one year from October last year to January this year.

 

He first entered the country in October 2015 via Suvarnabhumi airport immigration office.

 

The other two entries were through border checkpoints at Sadao district of Songkhla.

 

The last entry in October last year was through Krabi airport’s immigration office.

But was he a good teacher ?  He must have been.  He is not wearing cuffs. 

 

Could not find a website that shows the US Government was looking for him.

IMO, unless stricter vetting is done for the education system in this country, these sort of arrests are going to continue. This is not a dig at teachers working here, for the vast majority of them I truly feel sorry because of the few that messes it up for the rest.

 

And before the remarks against the immigration allowing this guy's entry & exit history; they didn't know because they weren't informed by the American authorities until recently.

 

One of the big drawbacks regarding intelligence; its value is vastly reduced unless it is shared.................;)

I think he has been told to keep his hands in his pockets until the cuffs are put on.

Missunderstood from birth? Drug dealers are criminals. Monks and Missionaries are not considered criminals until they break the law.
Just gonna stop ask you, because nothing good appearently comes from that.
