SATTAHIP – March 21, 2013 [Pattaya Daily News]; at 3 p.m., a theft victim came to journalists to ask for help, after a thief snatched her gold necklace in front of her Sattahip house last week. The victim identified herself as Mrs. Kanokwarn Promsorn, 59 years old.

She lives with her husband in a house on Soi Watkhaokanthamas in Chuensuk village, Sattahip. Her husband is commander Sampan Promsorn, 60 years old, of the Navy recruit training center. He had bought his wife the necklace for her birthday.

Mrs. Kanokwarn showed journalists a picture of the thief, taken by a CCTV as the thief was snatching the necklace from her neck while she was standing in front of her house with friends.

She immediately reported the theft to Pol. Lt. Capt. Sinsamut Boontassana, the detective officer on duty at Sattahip police station. But there has not been much progress on the case. So she brought the thief’s picture to the press to print, so the public could see it and help her find the thief.

The CCTV clearly recorded images of the incident. The thief appears to be about 25 to 30 years old, around 170 cm tall, with short hair and dark red skin. He was wearing a purple shirt and black trousers, and riding a blue Honda Wave 100 with no license plate.

The thief had stopped in front of her house while Mrs. Kanokwarn was talking with her friends. He pretended to be looking for someone, and asked if they knew of a man named Odd, who he said was working as a laborer in the soi.

When the opportunity came, the thief then snatched the victim’s necklace. When the older woman tried to grab her necklace back, the man pushed her and she slammed on the ground.

The thief then rode motorcycle up a dead-end soi. So he had to U-turn to come back out from the same direction, and headed to Sukhumvit Road. The victim said she suffered from black-and-blue bruises on her neck from the force of the thief yanking her necklace away.

The victim’s husband, Commander Sampan Promsorn, said the criminal might have carefully planned the theft. He probably knew that most of the residents in the soi were government officers. In the morning they would go to work and leave their wives and kids behind.

Then the thief had patrolled on his motorbike to find victims in the soi, looking for opportunities to snatch their properties. In the victim’s soi, there were CCTVs installed, but the thief was not afraid of them.

After the incident, commander Sampan took all the gold jewelry he owned, totaling 10 baht weight, to exchange into money, which he deposited in a bank to solve the problem of thieves.
