Pattaya, the 14th of May 2010 [Pattaya Daily News]: At approximately 2:00pm on Tuesday. Lieutenant Colonel Klitsakorn Thongin (Pattaya Police Investigator) along with a team of officers went to a well-known Pattaya department store along Beach Road in order to investigate a reported theft at the location.

Officers were informed by Mr. Aphichat Sabeedee [38] from Bangkok, that an unknown man had stolen his bag from a bathroom on the 3rd floor of the store. Restricting all the exits, police began to search the complex, eventually arresting the offender after he handed himself into police.

The offender, Mr. Siriphong Khamkhong [25] from Kamphaengphet, was found to be a habitual offender having been released from prison only 7 days prior to this most recent offence. Mr. Khamkhong explained that he had stolen the bag as he had been unable to find a job after being released from prison and had no friends in the area that could help him out. He admitted his guilt, stating that he was probably better off in prison where he new people and understood the environment.

Fortunately for Mr. Sabeedee his bag was returned to him without any damage or theft of the contents, which included Bt100,000 in cash, an expensive wristwatch and a mobile phone. Mr. Khamkhong has now been remanded in police custody were he will remain awaiting further judicial proceedings to commence.
