The police were initially notified of the theft by Ms. Olga on February 6 at 3 a.m. She informed the police of Pattaya police station that a thief had stolen her iPad, which she had forgotten in the restaurant of Royal Cliff hotel on Khao Phratamnuk.

However, the GPS signal installed in the iPad revealed that the thief was still in Pattaya with her iPad. Later, the police checked the GPS signal, and discovered that the iPad was inside a house behind Sophon market Soi 17, in south Pattaya.

A police team went to investigate, and discovered Mr. Voravuth in the house, lying down and playing games on the stolen iPad. So the police arrested him. During questioning, Mr. Voravuth confessed that he and his co-worker Mr. Watchara really stole the iPad. The police followed up to arrest Mr. Watchara while he was sleeping in the employee’s room of the Royal Cliff hotel.

Mr. Watchara told police the theft occurred while he was arranging the dining room for breakfast in the restaurant. He found the iPad left behind on the table, and didn’t know who it belonged to. So he consulted with Mr. Voravuth, and they agreed that they will sell the iPad to the pawn shop.

But the pawn shop offered to pay them only 4,500 THB for it. So Mr. Voravuth decided not to sell it and instead keep it to use. So Mr. Watchara gave Mr. Voravuth 2,250 THB for the iPad, and was playing games on it when he was arrested by the police.

After their investigation, the police brought both of the defendants to test their urine to detect for drugs, and found that Mr. Watchara had violet urine. Initially, the police charged the suspect waiters with stealing property and receiving stolen property

The suspects were sent to the investigation officer to prosecute according to the law. Mr. Watchara’s urine will also be inspected in detail again at Banglamung hospital to confirm the initial result of drugs in his system.
