PATTAYA – February 3, 2013 [Pattaya Daily News]; At 12:10 a.m., a report of thieves stealing a hotel room safe and suitcase of a tourist was received by Pattaya police. The incident occurred in a well-known 16-story hotel next to Wongamat Beach in Na Kleu.

Police went to check the scene at a 3rd floor room in the 4-star luxury hotel. Waiting for the police were the victims, a Kazakhstan tourist named Mr. Alexander and his girlfriend. Their room had been searched by thieves who had taken a big red suitcase, along with the room safe containing their passports, credit cards and $1,500 U.S. dollars.

The victims said they had gone out to dinner, and on their way back to the hotel, realized they had lost their room key. So they asked the hotel staff to open the door of their room. But when arriving at the room, they discovered the door was unlocked and their room had been burglarized.

 

The detective police team inspected the hotel’s CCTV. They saw that a male and female had walked to where the hotel rooms were, and after a short while the couple walked back down with the red luggage of the victim and left the hotel quickly.

Later, the police found the big red suitcase had been discarded on the Soi beside the hotel. Some jean pants and shirts belonging to the victim were still inside the suitcase, which the police kept for evidence.

The police initially assumed that the thieves had found the lost room key of the victims that may have fallen on the ground, so they used the key to enter and burglarize their room.
