PATTAYA – December 3, 2012 [Pattaya Daily News]; at 2:30 a.m., a report of property stolen in a burglary was received by Pol. Lt. Col. Veeravuth Meelai, investigation officer, Pattaya police station, Chonburi province. He went to check the scene with a police team.

The burglary occurred at a 2-story rental home in Sabaijai village, Soi Arunothai 11, central Pattaya. Waiting for the police in front of the house were Mr. Hesan Bashri, age 26, from Iran, and his friend, a co-tenant in the house.

They told police that they just rented the house four days ago, and were still arranging the furnishings. They had left the house at 7.30 p.m. to dine out. Before leaving, they had turned off all the lights and locked all the doors securely, both inside and outside the house.

When they returned at 2 a.m., the Iranians were startled to see that the lights on both the first and second floors were turned on. Yet the doors were still locked as usual.

So they entered the house and found that burglars had stolen an ASUS notebook computer worth 30,000 THB, and also 8,000 THB in cash from a second-floor bedroom. But nothing else was missing, and the intruders had not ransacked the house. The Iranians hurried to notify the police.

The Iranians showed police around the house to look for traces the burglars left behind. Police inspected the house in detail to look for fingerprints. After their initial investigation, police suspected that there had been more than one burglar. The thieves might have also been watching the victims, and had waited to break into the house after the Iranians left in the evening.

The burglars gained access by climbing to the second-floor bedroom and entering from there. It appeared the thieves were in the house for less than 10 minutes before escaping the same way they had entered, police said. The police further speculated that the burglars had probably parked a motorbike near the house and made a quick getaway.

The police will keep the fingerprints they found to use in a further investigation to track down the burglars.
