PATHUMWAN, BANGKOK – March 25, 2013 [Pattaya Daily News]; The arrest of a Vietnamese man for shoplifting was announced by Pathumwan police. The suspect was working with two other Vietnamese to steal well-known brands of clothes and goods from a Central World department store worth more than 200,000 baht.

The thieves used 2 foil bags to cover the theft prevention devices attached to the stolen merchandise. This prevented the alarm from sounding when the items were smuggled out the store entrance. The suspect’s two thieving partners escaped arrest.
The police investigation began when the department store reported that several criminals had stolen goods from well-known shops. So the police followed up and had the premises under surveillance before they arrested the suspect.

The suspect was identified as Mr. Wu Ngog Kuang, 34 years old, Vietnamese. He was watching over the clothes bags in front of the department store and looked suspicious.
After checking in his bags, officers found 206 pieces of Uniqlo clothes worth more than 200,000 baht. The police contacted the store, and were informed by the staff that items of clothing were missing from their displayed stock, like they had thought.

Mr. Wu confessed that he had come to Thailand on March 22. His two compatriots, “Mr. Pan” and “Miss Fluke,” convinced him to help them steal the clothes, which they would sell in Vietnam, and they would pay him for his help.
In the late afternoon before his arrest, the pair of thieves had Mr. Wu sit in front of the department store. Then they walked in and out from the store many times with the stolen clothes to put in his bags, until he got arrested.
