The man who has the passport, Karim Akrour, 36, was arrested by officers on February 19 when he and another man appeared to be acting suspiciously at an ATM near Baan Yin Dee Resort at Tritrang beach, south of Patong.
The pair tried to escape on a motorcycle when confronted about 11pm. Akrour was arrested soon after and his unnamed companion was held the next day.
One of the men claimed his companion had offered him 10,000 baht to give him a ride on a hired motorcycle to the nearest ATM.
Police say that after being arrested, Akrour offered police 5500 euros to drop charges. Officers told him that he should get his friend to bring the money.
But when he brought the money, the second man was also arrested. Investigations are continuing.
