Associated Press

BANGKOK (AP) — A Thai police colonel known as “Jo Ferrari” due to his collection of fine cars, who was wanted on suspicion of involvement in the death of a detained drug dealer who was allegedly being shaken down for cash, has turned himself in amid a nationwide manhunt. Police officials say Col. Thitisan Utthanaphon turned himself at a police station in a coastal village southeast of Bangkok. A police lieutenant was also apprehended. Earlier in the day, five other suspects, including a major and a captain, were brought before a judge who ordered them held without bail on charges of dereliction of duty, torture and murder.
