PATTAYA -April 29, 2013 [Pattaya Daily News]; at 2:30 a.m., several fishermen reported they had captured a thief who had been stealing property from boats. The report was received by Pol. Capt. Vinai Sanitphan, Deputy Inspector, Pattaya police station, Chonburi province.

The fishermen were detaining the thief at Laem Balihai port, south Pattaya, Moo 10 Tambon Nong Preu, Amphur Banglamung, Chonburi province.

The suspect, Mr. Vinai Boonpheng, age 25, Nongkhai province, was caught with 5 stolen fishing rods. Mr. Vinai said that he had climbed up to the boat that was parked at Laem Balihai port. He saw many fishing rods, so he took them in order to catch fish, but had not originally intended to steal the fishing rods.

The boat owner, Mr. Chanin Lamanee, age 25, said his boat was usually parked at the port, but previously the property left on the boat was always missing later. So he let his fishermen friends watch out for anything suspicious. Then as usual, he closed the door of the port entrance to prevent people from entering.

Then today his friend made a phone call to him to say that he saw a man climbing up to his boat. So Mr. Chanin hurried to come and check, and found Mr. Vinai had taken the fishing rods that he put on the boat, so he and his friends captured him.

After investigating in detail, the police didn’t believe that Mr. Vinai intended only to take the fishing rods to catch fish, so the police made notes for evidence, and sent him to the investigation officer to prosecute further according to the law.
