PATTAYA – November 12, 2012, at 12:10 a.m., arrests were announced for the theft of a safe from a gas factory by Pol. Col. Somneuk Jankate, Superintendent, Banglamung police station, Chonburi province; Pol. Lt. Col. Jakkarin Tuasuphap, Deputy Superintendent; Pol. Lt. Col. Nit Vithinanthakit, Inspector; Pol. Capt. Kornphong Sukvisit, Deputy Inspector; and the detective police team

The chief suspect was identified as Mr. Champ Muthijak, age 34, address 29 Moo 9 Tambon Dongmafai, Amphur Suwankuha, Nongbualamphu province. He is accused of breaking into the office with another man and stealing a safe of the “World Gas” factory, Pattaya branch, owned by Pol. Gen. Somyos Phoomphanmuang, Deputy Director-General.

The theft occurred on November 9, 2012. Police also seized a pickup truck used for the crime, a blue Nissan Frontier, license number KOR NOR-5448 Chonburi.

After his arrest, Mr. Champ confessed to the crime. He told police that he usually sells roses at the entertainment center, and had been hired as a gardener for the gas factory. On the night of the theft, Mr. Champ was driving his pickup truck to go back home, when he saw the factory’s security guard, Mr. Wallop Ubdulloh, age 34, drinking beer at his sentry box in front of the factory.

So Mr. Champ stopped by to ask for water to drink. Then Mr. Wallop tried to persuade Mr. Champ to steal two gas tanks that Mr. Wallop had stashed. But Mr. Champ declined, since he would not be able to sell the stolen tanks for much money.

So Mr. Champ planned to let Mr. Wallop sleep off his drunkeness and had no intention to steal anything. But then Mr. Wallop persuaded his nephew, Mr. Maroot or Beaw Nualnate, age 27, to make trouble and break into the office together with Mr. Champ.

So the pair of opportunistic thieves, Mr. Champ and Mr. Maroot, broke into the office with the blessing of Mr. Wallop, and stole the company safe and a mobile phone, along with 300 THB in coins. Mr. Champ also filled the gas tank of his truck with stolen diesel oil from the factory.

Then the thieves brought the safe box to the beautiful fish shop that belonged to Mr. Champ’s elder sister in Tambon Mabtaphood, Amphur Muang, Rayong province. The crooks then used nippers to pry open the safe. But when they opened the safe, Mr. Champ got moody because there were only old newspapers inside, and no valuable assets. So Mr. Champ went back home, and sold roses as usual as if nothing happened, until he was arrested by the police.

Mr. Champ said he committed the spur-of-the-moment theft because he want money to buy drugs to consume. He also didn’t know that the gas factory was owned by a high-ranking police commander. Later, the police took Mr. Champ to retrieve the stolen safe and burglary equipment at Baan Pla shop, address 49/4 Nernphayom road, Tambon Mabtaphood, Amphur Muang, Rayong province.

Meanwhile, another police team went to arrest the other two culprits, Mr. Maroot and his uncle, Mr. Wallop, at the house address 35/1, behind Kow Sung Hea millstone factory, Chaipornvithee road, Moo 12 Tambon Nong Preu, Amphur Banglamung, Chonburi province.

Police seized the stolen mobile phone and restrained the two suspects to investigate. Mr. Maroot confessed to all of the accusations. But the security guard Mr. Wallop denied the accusations, and said he wasn’t involved in the burglary. Mr. Wallop confessed that he had told police a lie about being drugged by the green tea, but claimed in fact he had gotten drunk and was sleeping while the crime was happening.

But the police didn’t believe Mr. Wallop. So the police restrained all of them to prosecute in an accusation of together stealing property at night by using a vehicle for convenience in escaping.

Pol. Maj. Gen. Katcha Thartsart, Commander, Chonburi province, is paying a lot of attention to this case. He said that after the burglary, a detective team had worked intensely to track down and arrest the thieves. The commander will report the updated news and has restrained the defendants to investigate further and obtain confessions to the crime.
