Thai police collected the reward money, which equaled about $84,000 because authorities didn’t get any outside tips. “This is real money,” the police chief said. Even their role in providing information wasn’t entirely recognized, it seems that the motorcycle taxi drivers who cluster on Bangkok were involved in the operation. The motorcycle taxi stands were the first stop for the police in this case.. One of them recognized the suspect from a photo showed to him by officers and possible other drivers who may have transported the suspect this year. One Thai investigator says the information collected from motorcycle drivers was consistent.
