BANGLAMUNG – November 24, 2012 [Pattaya Daily News]; At 2:30 p.m., a report of a criminal snatching many gold rings from a shop was received by Pol. Lt. Col.Jakkrin Tuasuparp, vice director of Banglamung police station, Chonburi. He reported the incident to his commander and then went to check the scene with Pol. Capt. Phuwadej Julkasewee, vice detective inspector; and a police team.

The theft occurred at the Thai Charern gold shop, number 118, located in a business building about 100 meters from the Rongpoh market police box, moo 1, Banglamung, Chonburi.

Waiting for the police was the shop owner, Mr. Wisuhawat Kaewmuneewong, 38 years old. There was a big wound on his head. The owner told police that the thief was young Thai man about 25 to 30 years old, 165-170 cm tall. He had a layered haircut and was wearing blue jeans and a black T-shirt.

The Thai thief acted like he wanted to buy 2 gold rings, so the shop owner brought out 5 rings for him to choose, worth a total of 65,000 baht. After about 10 minutes, the thief waited for the opportunity when the shop owner was careless, then he grabbed all the rings and ran from the shop.

The shop owner and his relatives chased the thief, but while running Mr. Wisuhawat slipped and his head banged on the floor and made a deep cut.

The criminal hopped on the back of a black Yamaha Mio motorbike driven by a waiting friend. The motorbike had a red license plate, but Mr. Wisuhawat did not get its numbers. He watched the thieves ride toward Lam Chabang.

The police examined the shop’s CCTV, which clearly recorded the images of the thief inspecting the rings. The footage also showed the theft 10 minutes later. While the owner was looking for more rings, the thief had snatched the five rings and escaped.

A witness stepped forward and said he recognized the thief. He told police that the thief was called “Beer,” and he was the son of a vegetable merchant in Rongpoh market. “Mr. Beer” was a junky and had worked for a pork butcher in the market, but had been fired after twice being caught stealing from his employer.

The police broadcasted through the police radio the appearance of Mr. Beer and the motorbike he was riding on, to alert the patrol forces and police volunteers, but there was no sign of the thieves. The police will continue to investigate and question more witnesses for information to arrest the suspect to prosecute.
