The trio were apprehended separately while using fake ATM cards to withdraw cash in downtown areas on Tuesday.

Police seized 56 fake ATM cards, 67,000 baht cash, four passports.

Pol Maj Gen Montri Sambunnanont, chief of Chiang Mai police, said the arrests came after Siam Commercial Bank (SCB) reported unusual cash withdrawals from its ATM machines.
