Pattaya 11th February 2011 [Pattaya Daily News] At 00.40 a.m, Police Lieutenant  Wallop Kangtharathip was notified about a burglary at the house 413/83 at the village ‘Suphamit villa’ in the soi Bong Gon, Pattaya Klang  Moo 9  Nongphrue  Banglamung  Chonburi, which was rented by a foreign tourist from whom the thief hoped to steal valuables and belongings.

 

The single storeyed single house was is rented to Mr. Colin Stanley Parkin, 59, Australian, who was waiting in the house for the police together with his Thai wife and their relatives.  The police immediately searched for fingerprints in the rooms where the furniture and belonging had clearly been moved and displaced, in the twin bedroom next to the master bedroom in which the renters had been sleeping and in the guest bedroom. On the sofa in the living room was a DVD player which the thief had placed there ready to take with him.. In the kitchen, a window was wide open and its metal cage yanked open. A screwdriver, belonging to the thief was found on the kitchen floor.

Mr. Colin Stanley Parkin said that he and his Thai wife rented the house together. While he and his wife were asleep in their room as usual, he was shocked to find the figure of a Thai man of average build, aged about 25-30, opening the door from the twin room into the room where Mr. Parkin was sleeping. Mr. Parkin said he immediately got up and yelled at the man, who immediately ran out through the back door. Mr.Parkin tried to follow but the thief had closed the door and pushed it to stay closed. Mr Parkin however used his strength to push the door until it bounced open along with the thief, who fearfully climbed over the back wall and escaped. Mr Parkin immediately called the police.

 

Mr. Parkin furthermore said, “It is quite unbelievable that a thief would break into my house while I’m still sleeping in it”. It is assumed that the thief climbed over the wall at the back of the house and yanked the kitchen window open. While the thief was in the house he gathered the belongings he intended to steal for his escape, such as the DVD player he had placed on the sofa. After that, he looked for valuables in the 2nd bedroom, the twin bedroom connected to Mr. Parkin’s bedroom, where he displaced various items of furniture. Then he walked into the other bedroom occupied by Mr. Parkin, who then woke up and chased the thief out of the house. It is not sure if the thief was aware that there was somebody in the house. The stolen items include 1 Kodak camera and a mobile phone, which are worth an estimated total of 50,000 THB.

It is hoped that the fingerprint evidence gathered at the house will lead to identifying the burglar.
