On Thursday Night, Pattaya’s Tourist Police arrested a Danish National in Pattaya accused of stealing a rented motorbike from Phuket and demanding money from its rightful owner to secure its safe return. Police Lieutenant Colonel Arun, the Inspector-in-Charge of the station received information from his counterpart in Phuket that an arrest warrant had been issued for Mr. Dennis Mark Knudsen aged 24. Information received by the Phuket Investigators suggested the man was hiding somewhere in Pattaya. The warrant stated that on 1st June 2012 Mr. Knudsen is alleged to have rented a motorbike from a shop in Kathu District in Phuket province and failed to return the vehicle in accordance with the rental agreement. When the owner of the bike contacted Mr. Knudsen he is alleged to have demanded money otherwise the bike would not be returned. The case was reported to Kathu Police Station on 27th August and arrest warrant number 432/2555 was issued on the same day by Phuket Provincial Court. The arrest of Mr. Knudsen was made at an unspecified apartment in Pattaya on Thursday Night. He will now be transferred to Kathu Police Station for processing. He failed to confirm or deny the details of the warrant during his stay at the Pattaya Tourist Police Station.

    Just the fact that he rode a scooter from Phuket to Pattaya proves this whack job is a real hard ass. If I get on a scooter for 30 kilometers I am screaming to get off the darn thing and take a break. Scooters are great for down the street and back but cross country travel deserves more thought. Maybe next time he will consider stealing a car and demanding ransom money.
