Farang on bicycle enters temple and steals 1,000 baht donation money

Farang on bicycle enters temple and steals 1,000 baht donation money

Picture: Thai Rath

 

CCTV footage at a temple in Ayuthaya showed a Caucasian man aged about 40-45 arrive on a bicycle and stop outside.

 

After puffing coolly on a cigarette he goes inside where another camera catches him casing the joint before he checks no one is watching and steals 1,000 baht from a donation tree in the chapel.

 

He was not interested in the 500s, 100s or 20s on the tree - he just wanted the bigger note, reported Thai Rath.

 

Reporters went to the temple of Wat Panomyong where monk Phra Natthapong, 52, told them that the incident happened on Sunday afternoon about 2pm.

 

Some people had donated money and Phra Natthapong had left the chapel for a while. When he came back he thought money was missing so he checked the two cameras the temple had installed.

 

He said he had not reported the matter to police - he just wanted to warn other temples and people in the area to watch out for this foreigner on a bicycle.

Surely someone up there knows a farang on a bike

The idiot farang must have thought that the money grew on the tree and if he take

some, others will soon grow... or, he's just a heartless rotten thief...

I'm curious how they could tell from this video that he stole a 1,000 Baht note? It doesn't seem clear enough to me, or were they going on height of his hand, and if so how can they tell if it was only one note, not two close together?

Difficult to assess race & impossible to see what might have been in his hand. I'm therefore assuming 'smokescreen' to deflect from the knicker-nicker ?

You have pretty broke to be robbing temples. This scum shouldn't be in Thailand. Lowest of the low. Too many broke and dirty farangs hanging around in Thailand. Packed to the rafters! Cheap Charlies who are prepared to walk in the Thailand heat all to save 20 baht. Police must find this Losers Representative and let him do hard time.

I sometimes take the free BMTA bus. Should I be kicked out of Thailand?

That is terrible what some people do. That money could have gone toward a deserving monk's new smart phone or computer or a plane ride to some other part of the country. Shame on the scoundrel!

Taxi driver syndrome.

 

Yesterday we have a story reflecting badly on monks [the underwear thief] and, lo and behold, today we have a story showing them as victims of theft.

 

Coincidence is indeed a mercurial thing.

It's good to have a balance.
