PATTAYA – January 11, 2013 [Pattaya Daily News]; at 1 p.m., a report of a cell phone theft was received at Nongprue police station by Pol. Maj. Gen. Katcha Thatusart, commander of Chonburi provincial police.

The victim making the theft report was Ms. Nawamol Sansuk, 28 years old, a nurse of Memorial Chokechai 4, Bangkok. She told police that her cell phone had been snatched from her grasp at the entrance of soi Marbyailia 23, moo 6, Nongprue, Banglamung.

However, she said she remembered the thief’s motorcycle and its license plate number. The police general then ordered Pol. Col. Somnuek Janket, director of Nongprue police station, to find the criminal.

Police quickly located the suspect’s house from the motorbike’s license plate number and arrested him. Later, Pol. Capt. Kornpong Sukwisit, vice inspector, asked the victim what happened.

She said she and her friend were on a holiday, and she was sitting in the passenger seat of a motorcycle being driven by her friend. She was chatting on her phone while they were riding and approaching the entrance of soi Marbyailia.

Then a dark-skinned Thai man on a motorbike behind them pulled alongside and snatched the phone from her hands. He was about 175 cm tall, wearing a sarong, and a black football jersey with No. 16 printed on its back.

He was riding a black Yamaha Nouvo, registration code Kor Wor Chor 913. The thief rode away fast, but Ms. Nawamol got a good look at the bike and the license plate number.

From checking the registration records of the motorcycle, police found that the owner lived on soi Marbyailia 13. So the police went to the address, and found the motorbike parked in front of a house. A short while later, a man who resembled the appearance of the thief described by Ms. Nawamol came out of the house.

He was wearing blue shorts and a yellow football jersey. The police went to search him, and found the victim’s phone hidden in his shorts’ pocket. But the phone’s SIM card had been removed.

Police detained the suspect and brought him to the station for the victim to see. She insisted that he was the thief. He was identified as Mr. Umas Soheng or Bangmas, 35 years old.

On further investigation, police found that the suspect had the same surname of the Toh Imam, Sangob Tohen, of mosque Nuyulyagreen, in soi Nernplabwarn.
