PATTAYA – December 6, 2012 [Pattaya Daily News]; at 2:40 a.m., a report of bystanders capturing a thief who stole a tourist’s bag on the beach was received by Pol. Lt. Vitsanu Chaisuwan, Deputy Inspector, Pattaya police station, Chonburi province.

The man had stolen the bag of a tourist couple who went to swim in the sea near the Montien Hotel on Pattaya Beach Road. The thief had tried to run away to escape, but was captured in front of the Queen Pattaya Hotel on central Pattaya road.

Police arrived at the scene and found bystanders detaining the suspect, identified as Mr. Manus Khempech or J, age 25, from Nakornsawan province. Police seized the stolen evidence of a small black waistbag containing 460 THB cash, a mobile phone and personal documents.

After his arrest, Mr. Manus confessed to stealing the bag of the foreign tourists while they went to swim in the sea. He said that he had to make trouble because he was unemployed and had no money to use. Mr. Manus had gotten into a quarrel with his girlfriend because he had no money to pay for their room rent. So he made trouble because he wanted money to pay for the room rent for his girlfriend.

Mr. Manus said his girlfriend had kept walking on the beach while he went off to steal the bag, so she was not involved in the theft. After making trouble, Mr. Manus ran away to escape and was captured by the bystanders.

The police brought the suspect back to where the theft occurred on Pattaya Beach to inform the victims. The theft victims, a Russian couple, were still swimming in the sea when the police arrived. The Russians were then told what had happened. The Russian couple went to the Pattaya police station along with the thief to check their stolen property.

The Russian man, Mr. Myra Vladimir Aleichem, age 50, checked his recovered waistbag and said nothing was missing. He told police that he and his wife had left their hotel to walk on the beach late at night. They saw that the calm ocean at night is beautiful. So they went to swim in the sea, and put the bag with their property on the beach. They didn’t think that the thief will steal their bag.

The victims paid respect to thank and praise the police, as well as the honest bystanders who arrested the thief. Initially, the police charged the thief with stealing property at night. Then they sent him to the investigation officer to prosecute further according to the law.
