Pattaya, 6 November 2010, [Pattaya Daily News]: While walking down Pattaya Beach Road in the early hours of Nov6, taking video shots of the tourist attractions, two Iranians, Messrs. Vakil and Mechical Doctor, were approached by two lady boys who offered them their sexual services.  Getting up close, one of the lady boys pick-pocketed a digital camera from Mr. Vakil and then made a quick getaway. Conveniently, Mr Mechical had captured both lady boys with the camera on his mobile phone. The victim, quickly realising he had been robbed, set off in hot pursuit with his friend and managed to conduct a citizen’s arrest at the beginning of Walking Street, subsequently calling the police.

A police team, led by Pol.Capt. Somchai Chaikhananukun, arrived at the scene and the thief was taken into custody, though his accomplice managed to escape. Under interrogation at the police station, the suspect, Mr. Banjong Janwong [26], maintained that it was actually his accomplice, Mr.B ,who had stolen the camera and had then passed it quickly to him. Doing a search of criminal records it was discovered that Mr. Banjong had committed two similar crimes of theft from tourists recently, as well as for using yah-bah (methamphetamine). Both thieves were charged with collaborative theft and a search is currently underway for Mr.B

Pol.Capt. Somchai told press that the authorities were concerned that the prevalent thefts, especially by lady boys often intent on raising funds for their sex changes, were harming Pattaya’s international reputation.
