Then Pol Sgt-Maj Parinya Maneekhot, 40, was stopped for a search at a checkpoint while riding a motorcycle  on the Vibhavadi-Rangsit highway in Don Muang district of Bangkok on April 28, 2010.

Pol Sgt-Maj Parinya refused to be searched and fled into Vibhavadi Soi 1.  While he was fleeing, a large plastic bag fell off the rear of his motorcycle. The bag was picked up by police who had followed him from the checkpoint.
