PATTAYA – September 9, 2012 [Pattaya Daily News]: At 12:15 a.m., a report of three rooms being burglarized was received by Pol. Lt. Col. Satapat Pimkam, the detective officer of Pattaya police station, Chonburi. He rushed to the scene with patrolling forces and the detective team.

The three rented rooms were located behind Fare Tex condo plaza, moo 5, Nakluea, Banglamung. The scene was single-story building, built in a row of 10 rooms.

The first burglarized room was number 179/54, rented by Mr. Aka Chermhue, age 39. He lost 6,000 baht.

The second room was No. 179/61, rented by Mr. Yi Muelae, age 34. His belongings were scattered about the room. He lost his piggy bank, a pair of gold earrings, and a 1-salueng gold ring.

The last room was number 179/62, rented by Ms. Nantikarn Maber, age 23. Nothing was taken from her room. All the victims are Akha tribe hill people.

The victims had gone to sell souvenirs at the beach at around 3 p.m. When they returned at night, they found their doors had been left open after the break-ins, so they called the police.

From checking the victims’ rooms, and questioning all the witnesses, police concluded that the burglars used a steel stick to break open the room doors, and then stole the Akha tribe’s property.

The police expected that the burglars were probably junkies living near the rented rooms. However, the detective team was set out to find their tracks to capture them.
