Thai immigration police have arrested two Czechs who are wanted for having robbed a money truck of the Czech central bank in 2008.
Immigration Police Bureau Commissioner Pol Lt Gen Wibul Bangthamai told a press conference that Josef Blazek, 32, and Rudolf Tesarek, 35, have been arrested at Robinson Department Store in Chon Buri's Sriracha district.
Wibul said the two robbed a money truck on January 17 2008 and made off with 3 million euros. They were arrested and sentenced to 12 years in jail but they fled while appealing against the ruling.
Wibul said Thai police learned that the two sneaked into Thailand from Laos in August 2010 and were hunting for them until one of them contacted their Czech wife to meet them at the department store.
