Speaking at a press conference, Capo deputy spokesman Pol Col Anucha Romyanan said forensic and explosive ordnance disposal (EOD) police officers had made preliminary inspections of four police agencies ― the Inspector General's Bureau, Office of Internal Audit, Immigration Division 1 and Technology Crime Suppression Division ― at Building B, Chaeng Wattana government complex.
The team found many rooms under the four agencies had been ransacked and there was property loss and damage.
Pol Col Anucha did not elaborate on the assets lost and damaged but said damaged parties could file complaints with Thung Song Hong police station, which has jurisdiction over the complex.
A similar inspection led by deputy commander of Provincial Police Region 1 Kachen Kachapalayuk and deputy finance permanent secretary Supa Piyajitti was made at the Finance Ministry.
In a building that houses the ministry’s information technology and communications centre, authorities detected evidence of break-ins. One wall in a room was punctured.
Many items had been stolen, including 20 mobile phones, at least 10 iPads and three laptop computers, said Pol Maj Gen Kachen, who was assigned to supervise the ministry when it was seized by the protesters last month.
Police found two giant fire crackers, which were still functional, on the ground floor of the Comptroller General's Department office.
Four CCTV cameras around the building were missing and a glass window of a meeting room was broken. Thieves also stole equipment belonging to the department’s technicians and a private contractor, Pol Maj Gen Kachen added.
Supporters of the People's Democratic Reform Committee (PDRC) occupied the Finance Ministry on Nov 25 and the government complex on Nov 27 before leaving both places to march to Government House on Monday.
