Bangkok: Thai police said on Sunday they had
detained a former US policeman who is due to be deported to
the United States where he is wanted for people smuggling and
raping a minor.

Gilbert Dubois, 55, from Orange County in California, was
arrested in Bangkok yesterday, said police Colonel Voravat

"His retirement visa has been revoked and he will be
deported," Voravat told a news agency.

The United States coordinated with Thai police to seek
the arrest of Dubois, who escaped a warrant back home for
allegedly raping a minor and smuggling 13 Thai women out of
Thailand to work illegally in 2005 and 2007.
