Pattaya, 16 December 2010 (PDN): At 11.00 pm on Thursday Miss Wiyada Aranyachot, the supervisor from a cosmetic store in Central Festival Pattaya Beach Department Store, together with her staff and security guard, had taken a Russian shoplifter they had apprehended to the Pattaya Police station.

Miss Wiyada (35), from Na Jomtien, Sattahip, claimed that the man, Russian national Mr. Pavel Vladmirovich [30], had been caught stealing 2 bottles of Dior Perfume to a value of just over 6000 baht.

She explained that Mr. Vladmirovich and two accomplices (one woman and one man) had been browsing around the cosmetics area on the 1st floor of the store when he was observed putting 2 bottles of perfume in his pocket. He then carried on browsing as before. However sales and security staff had been watching him and were waiting to see if he left the store without paying.

Once Mr. Vladmirovich and his associates had left the store the security guard immediately secured evidence from the CCTV and then went in pursuit of the robbers to catch them. By this time the suspects had passed the merchandise to each other and dispersed to different floors of the department store to make their escape. Finally, they were cornered by the security guard as they took an elevator to the ground floor. Mr. Vladmirovich tried to run away and took the stolen merchandise from his and his friend’s pocket and threw the bottles on the floor, simultaneously yelling that he didn’t steal them.

The store staff tried to negotiate with Mr. Vladmirovich, telling him that if he paid the 6,300 baht for the perfume they wouldn’t press charges. But the Russian kept denying his guilt, also saying that the other 2 suspects were not his friends and they had only just met a short while ago. The store staff released the other 2 Russians and took Mr. Vladmirovich to the Pattaya Police Station.

At first, under interrogation by the police, Mr. Vladmirovich denied the allegations against him. But once presented with the evidence, he owned up to the theft and paid the store staff the money he owed. The staff told police they didn’t want any further legal proceedings. The suspect gave his details to the police for the record, before being released.
