A Russian man has been arrested in southern Thailand for alleged involvement in illegal online financial transactions. According to a Phuket Express report, the transactions generated over a billion baht.

It’s understood the man had also overstayed his visa, although police have not specified by how long, and that he was being sought under an Interpol Red Notice.

Officers from Thailand’s Immigration Bureau say the man, named only as 32-year-old Mr Nagoro, was detained in a car at a border checkpoint in the Khuan Don district.

Initially, he was taken to Khuan Don police station to be charged with overstaying his visa. It subsequently emerged that the man is allegedly a member of a major Russian criminal gang.

Nagoro is accused of involvement in illegal electronic financial transactions that generated over a billion baht, with 164 million baht of benefits, of which he reportedly received 10%.
