Somkiat Jandok may be remembered as the man who broke into jail to commit a crime.
The crime, according to an accusation by an inmate's relative, Tumma Boonmee from Ban Dung district in Udon Thani, was that "prison guard" Somkiat took her 20,000 baht as a bribe, and promised her that he would arrange a royal pardon to shorten the prison term of her cousin.
Mrs Tumma told police she met the 37-year-old Mr Somkiat, who claimed to be a prison officer, during a visit to the lockup in Muang district last Friday.
