Lumpini police apprehended two Romanians with 795 fake ATM cards and were investigating the pair on suspicion they had used the forged cards to withdraw money from cash machines in inner Bangkok.
Pol Maj Gen Suebsak Phansura, commander of the Metropolitan Police Division 5, said the two men were spotted riding motorcycle taxis near the Thailand Tobacco Monopoly in Klong Toey district on Tuesday afternoon.
The police said the men were acting suspiciously and asked to search them. One held many ATM cards, so officers accompanied them to their room at a hotel in Sukhumvit Soi 11 for a further search.
