Crime Suppression Division, Bangkok police in Nakhon Pathom have arrested the woman who allegedly married at least 11 men and ran off with the dowries. She and her real husband were both wanted on several warrants for other offences.
The runaway bride arrested for allegedly duping numerous "husbands" out of 3 million baht, and her real husband were both wanted on several warrants for other offences, police said on Friday.
Jariyaporn Buayai, 32, in Krathum Baen district of Samut Sakhon and her real husband Kittisak Tantiwatkul, 33, in Samphran district of Nakhon Pathom were picked up on Thursday night after a facebook post led the cops to their door.
Following Thai tradition, each man gave her a generous sum of money - a dowry - at which point she disappeared, the men told police.
From each husband, she collected between $6,000 and $30,000 before vanishing, using various excuses such as she had to return to her family's home to deal with their fruit business or her horoscope advised her that it just wasn't a good time to be married.
