During the wee hour of 20 January 2008, Sergeant Major Winai Petchprapai, who is in charge of the Police Box in Bangsaray, was notified that a man had broken into the home of Mrs. Rumpeung Doungnoi (35), located in Moo 7, Sattahip, Chonburi. The thief was surprised to find that Mrs. Rumpeung was home and he hastily ran out of the house and jumped into the elephant excrement pool at Nongnooch Village.

A police team, along with Sawang Rojanatham (Sattahip Rescue Foundation) and about thirty local residents searched for the hapless, would-be burglar. (See attached video.) The large pool was full of elephant excrement, which, as one might expect, caused a very unpleasant stench. The pool was also filled with Water Hyacinth, making it quite difficult to locate the miscreant.

Officials finally located the man, who was breathing through the stem of a Water Hyacinth, after searching for two hours. The thief, Mr. Who (22), a Khmer, confessed that he had snuck into Thailand, illegally, and was unsuccessful in finding a job. He decided to break into Mrs. Rumpeung’s house. He smashed in the window, but was surprised to find that she was home. Mr. Who panicked and ran out to nearby bushes and jumped into the pool. Police brought the wet, and presumably, smelly Mr. Who to the police station. He will be deported back to Cambodia.
