Pattaya, 18 May 2011 [Pattaya Daily News]: Police Lieutenant Wiwat Sookjit and the patrol police team captured two thieves at the entrance of Soi Wat Boon Sampan.

Arnon Seaboonthai, 21 and Tawat Yuttanava, 19 were arrested for stealing a gold necklace, worth 5,000 Baht.
Arnon confessed that his partner and he were members of a theft gang of 7-8 people.

They have been stealing for a long time without being caught, the suspect said.

They normally work as a team where two men are responsible for stealing while being guarded by another 4-5 men, who circle the area with their motorcycles, Arnon admitted.

The victim, Napat Yamprayoon reported her necklace was snatched from her neck while she was riding home on Sukhumvit Road.

The two robbers rode parallel to her bike for a while before the robber in the passenger seat reached over to her side and snatched her necklace, the victim said.

Napat said she chased after the suspects until she found the patrol police who continued the pursuit and finally caught them.

The people detained Arnon and Tawat for further interrogation to expose the rest of the gang members.
Fisherman Drowned Trying To Escape
One of the suspicious Burmese fishermen was drowned trying to escape into the sea after the police approached him for questioning.

Sattahip, 19 May 2011 [Pattaya Daily News]: Police Sergeant Rouy Sap Rak Issara and the security guard of Ban Chong Samaesan security informed Police Captain Ekkachai Moonlee (Sattahip Police Investigator) that a drowning male body was found at Pitak Mongkol Jetty.

At the quay, the topless body in blue jeans was taken out of the water by the rescue team, a Sattahip officer said.
Earlier that day, during their patrol the security guard and volunteer police team encountered a group of suspicious Burmese fishermen at the quay, Police Sergeant Rouy Sap Rak Issara reported.

When they approached the Burmese group for questioning, the fishermen ran away towards the jetty and all jumped into the water trying to escape, he continued.

However, this particular suspect could not swim away and hence was drowned in front of the officers.

According to the Police Sergeant Rouy-Sap, the officers tried to rescue the victim but they were unsuccessful.

Police Captain Ekkachai believed that the drowning victim was one of the illegal Burmese immigrants working as a fisherman at the jetty.

He jumped into the water possibly trying to escape from being exposed even though he could not swim, Captain Ekkachia added.

The body was sent to Sattahip Hospital for an autopsy examination.
