Pol Lt Col Watcharaphong questioned Mr Sanya Khonpian, chief of the municipality police about the incident. Mr Sanya denied the allegations and said that the surfer in fact had left his sports equipment at the beach for couple of days without permission.

As it is illegal in Phuket as well as in other provinces to leave your belongings at the beach for too long without acquiring permission from the municipality, beach authorities or the municipality police have the right to confiscate their belongings.
