On November 17 the Crime Suppression department of the Royal Thai Police arrested seventy-year-old Australian fugitive Guido James Eglitis.

He was tracked down to a hotel in Soi Sukhumvit 22, Bangkok, where he was, apparently, staking out his next victim, a fellow Australian who had informed on him in the past.

He was arrested on a warrant issued in 2007 after he was due to stand trial in Brisbane on charges of kidnapping, deprivation of liberty, robbery, impersonating a police officer and possessing restricted items.

He had been arrested in Cambodia in 2015 following the alleged robbery and assault of a British man who reportedly fled the country in fear of his life.

Two weeks ago he was spotted in various Bangkok bars by fellow Australians who reported his reappearance.

One man, Australian Grahame Lynch, reported on Facebook last night that Eglitis had been seen at a hotel opposite his workplace in Bangkok and had allegedly been following him after Lynch had previously given evidence against the fugitive.

Eglitis is wanted by Interpol for a wide range of crimes including robbery, kidnapping, torture and indecency.

He was released from jail in Cambodia three weeks ago and was spotted in various Bangkok Bars soon after slipping into Thailand.
