    A truck carrying 80 buckets of paint was in an accident and rolled over on the road. The paint was all gone after the crash, worth over 300,000 THB. The damage must be paid back by the delivery company. Nattida 25-year-old works as a supplier for a paint company in Thailand. She went to the Damrongdhama Center in Nonthaburi Province to ask for help on 2 March 2021. The woman met with Thanakorn Homchuen the center’s principle. Nattida revealed that on 20 February 2021 at 5.30 am she hired a driver to pick up paint at a paint factory in Bang Na, Bangkok to a customer in Suphan Buri Province. The truck was on road No.304 heading to the province when the driver made a sudden turn to avoid a person who was running on the road.

     

    The truck rolled over and the crash revealed the 80 buckets of paint that was stored inside. The driver was very lucky as he is only slightly injured on one leg. Nattida further stated officials came to the location after the accident and moved the truck to a nearby police station along with the driver. The paint buckets that were not damaged were gathered and placed on the road waiting to be picked up by another truck. Nattida drove from Bang Na to the location but when she arrived not even one bucket could be found. She asked villagers who said after officials and the driver left to the police station other vehicles stopped and invited themselves to take a bucket or two each.

     

    One came after the other and shortly after it was all sold out, with the exception that no one actually paid. Nattida went to file a report with Police Lieutenant Supachai Komkong at the Sai Noi Police Station in Nonthaburi Province. She wants to press charges on every person that took paint from the accident location. Only a few buckets were damaged in the incident, but because of those persons she has to pay damages for all buckets as they are no where to be found. The center will be working with the police station in an investigation to bring in those who took advantage of the moment.

    A fake lottery gang has been arrested after cashing in the tickets. Police Major General Suwat Sangnum and other related officials from the the Crime Suppression Division (CSD) reported on 28 February 2021 about the arrest of 3 suspects who are members of a fake lottery gang. Thongin 59-year-old, Sarawut 23-year-old, and Supaporn 20-year-old are wanted under the arrest warrant no. 22-23/2564 issued by the Lom Sak Provincial Court on 23 February 2021. Thongin was arrested in Bangphli District, Samut Prakan Province. Sarawut was arrested in Tha Luang District, Lopburi Province. While Supaporn was arrested in Kaeng Khoi District, Saraburi Province.

    On 19 February 2021, a lottery buyer in Lom Sak Market fell victim to 2 persons who cashed in a fake lottery ticket claiming they had won almost 100,000 THB. The first suspect walked in and showed the lottery buyer 2 winning tickets with the 5th prize from the latest government lottery draw on the 16th. The next suspect walked in and claimed he had 1 winning ticket with a 4th prize. The lottery buyer later realized all 3 tickets are fake. The victim went to file a report with the Lom Sak Police and an investigation was started. Officials discovered where each suspect was hiding, and all were arrested shortly after.

    All victims admitted that they created fake winning lottery tickets before cashing it in with the victim. A few days before the lottery draw, the suspects will buy real lottery tickets. Then when the winning numbers are announced they choose tickets with numbers close to the winning prizes. They then erase some numbers off the ticket before replacing it with numbers cut out from real tickets. They also create fake QR codes using the same method of cut and paste. This is not the first time the gang has done this; they usually choose lottery buyers who have bad eyesight. They have done this many times before up in Northern Thailand. They choose low paying prizes, so no one suspects how they have so many winning tickets.

    Ten families in Village Group 6 in Tambon Toongkamin of Namon District in the southern Thai province of Songkhla sent a complaint to local media yesterday (Feb 26, 2021) that they have been living with an unpaved road for more than 40 years.

    Village leader Purim Roongruang said the 10 families have had to endure the problem as local officials have ignored their request to pave the road.

    “Even though we are a tiny group of people, we are all Thais,” said Purim.

    “Other village roads have been paved, but the local officials concerned have ignored our problem for a very long time.

    “This is very unfair to us.”

  • Covid-19 did not originate in Chatuchak Market.

    The post Covid-19 did not originate in Chatuchak Market. appeared first on ThaiResidents.com - Thai Local News - Thai News.

    The World Health Organization (WHO) has reported that they are starting an investigation on whether Covid-19 originated from Chatuchak Market in Bangkok. The Department of Disease Control states it is impossible for the virus to have come from the large animal market. The market itself is under watch from local officials to make sure there are no illegal trades on protected animals including protected bird, turtles, and snake species. WHO stated the investigation is based on information that the Thai Horseshoe Bat carries a SARS virus that is 91% similar to Covid-19.

    Although this is true, the virus cannot be transmitted from animal to humans. It is common knowledge at this point that consuming wild animals is not a good idea. Asawin Khwanmuang the Bangkok Governor believes this is all a big misunderstanding. The governor stated the belief that Covid-19 originated in Bangkok before it arrived in Wuhan, China is false. The source of information may have misunderstood information received. The governor has asked officials from the Ministry of Public Health (MOPH) and received confirmation that the virus found in the Thai Horseshoe Bat cannot be transmitted to humans.

    The principle of the market reported he is confident Chatuchak market is not connected to the source of Covid-19. Since the Covid-19 situation the market has a schedule for big cleaning days where all parts of the market are cleaned and sanitized regularly. This way vendors in the market and customers can visit the market with comfortability. Currently animals are not allowed to be sold inside the market. Only items allowed are clothes, daily goods, and trees. Shopping destinations in Bangkok have Covid-19 safety measures but the most important way to stay safe from Covid-19 is to practice social distancing, sanitize your hands often, and follow the news.

    The post Thai YouTuber receives backlash after throwing dog onto BBQ stove. appeared first on ThaiResidents.com - Thai Local News - Thai News.

    There are many Thai Youtubers online with high competition and the battle on content creating. A Thai Youtuber published a video where he was having pork BBQ and a dog came flying into the stove. Many netizens disagree with the content stating they know this was staged and it is not right to harm the animal for content. The video is titled “having BBQ like rich people, but something happened?!” in Thai. The man was sitting in his home with a BBQ stove when a puppy named “Tuadam” flew into the BBQ stove. The man started acting confused and shocked claiming he had no idea where the dog came from.

    The video went viral shortly after it was posted, and backlash started to arrive right away. Netizens commented the content is not creative and they disagree with the way this Youtuber is searching for views. They believe he intentionally planned to throw the puppy onto the hot pan. What he did should be considered as animal torture and he should receive legal punishment for the actions recorded in the video. The Youtuber has since deleted the video from YouTube and Tiktok hoping that netizens would stop commenting on his actions. But it is not that easy, and people are still trying to act against his behavior. Other videos from the same Youtuber have been shared online and netizens are reporting his channel hoping the Youtuber will stop uploading videos once and for all.

    Some netizens also believe that this Youtuber has taken inspiration from another female Youtuber. This woman was eating when her cat suddenly jumped onto the dish. Netizens commented they believe someone threw the cat onto the table. The Youtuber later came out and stated her cat is very playful and it was not thrown onto the food intentionally. What do you think about this Youtuber? is it possible that the puppy jumped onto the BBQ stove or was it thrown there by someone? Creating content for entertainment is good but not if others including animals are harmed to get such content.
