PATTAYA – March 5, 2013 [Pattaya Daily News]; at 2 a.m., a report of thieves burglarizing a Jomtien house was received by Pol. Lt. Capt. Tanongsak Inpadong, vice suppression inspector, Muang Pattaya police station. Making the theft report was Mr.Wimol Amarom, a civil defense volunteer, who called for police to arrest the thieves.

The burglary occurred in an empty house on Soi Thep Prasit 5/1 Moo 12, Tambon Nong Prue, Banglamung. At the scene, police officers discovered two 2-story houses next to each other. No one was in the dark house, which had been burglarized.

The arrested suspects were a couple, identified as Mr. Songyong Seesawana, 46 years old, and Mrs.Karnjana Wongjantuek, 27 years old. The couple had entered the home and were stealing an air conditioner and several peeled bundles of copper wires when caught.

Police seized the couple’s scavenger motorcycle connected to a wheel cart with no license plate. The wheelcart contained many burglary tools as well as stolen property from the home.

Police questioned the next-door neighbor Mr. Wimol Amarom, who had called police after he saw the burglars. Mr. Wimol said he had been sleeping when he was awakened by the howling and barking noises of his dogs, which did not stop.

So he got up and looked out from his 2nd-floor window. He saw the thieving couple had stolen his neighbor’s air conditioning compressor, which was already loaded on their vehicle. So he notified the Pattaya civil volunteer to report to the police to arrest the suspects with the evidence before they could escape.

Police did a background check of the suspects, and discovered that both were arrested in 2012 for stealing. They served time in prison and were released four months ago. The couple apparently made their living as scavengers. When traveling along the soi, the couple saw the empty darkened house so they tried to burglarize it.

Police discovered the house belongs to a businesswoman who owns a glass shop and several shops in Pattaya. The police will contact her to press charges against the career criminals.
