Pattaya 28th February 2010 [Pattaya Daily News] Pattaya Police Superintendent Suwanlaorng received a call from a Police Volunteer that he had restrained a thief who had snatched a necklace from Mrs. Jat Konk Konen in front of Siam Bayshore Hotel, Thappraya Road, South Pattaya, Nongprue, Banglamung, as he raced past on his motorbike, only to lose control on the road side enabling her husband to apprehend him. 

The Officer arrived at the scene to find a much shaken Mrs. Konen [37] waiting to provide a statement to the police. Nearby the offender Mr. Ball (alias) [17] was being detained by a police volunteer along with the evidence of a Tagec necklace and a blue – black Honda Wave motorbike.  They were all escorted to the police station for interrogation.

Mrs. Konen stated that before the incident, she, her husband and two children were riding around on a baht bus sightseeing. When they arrived back at the hotel, whilst alighting from the vehicle, a motorbike came at some speed and snatched the necklace from around her neck. Mrs. Konen continued that she did not notice the offender until he approached her snatching the necklace bought from Finland at a cost of 1,000 euro or 44,000baht.  Losing his balance as he tried to make his escape enabled her husband to apprehend him.  At the same time, a police volunteer approached the scene, taking charge of the offender and radioing for assistance.

 

The offender has been charged with theft and his motor bike impounded by Pattaya Police Investigator Lieutenant Colonel Phumipat Namphuttha for further legal proceedings.
