Police have arrested a French couple in connection with the theft of an iPhone in Chiang Mai.

 

The pair were arrested just 10 minutes before their plane was due to depart Chiang Mai on Saturday morning.

 

Police had been searching for the couple after CCTV footage of them stealing an iPhone from an office area near the Tha Pae gate in Chiang Mai was shared to Facebook on Friday.

 

Poster Pholsomsuk Paisarn said that the foreigners came into the office wanting to use the toilets. Moments before a staff member had left her iPhone on a sofa while she went off to do something in another room.

 

The video - in two clips - showed the man cover the phone with a bag then later place it in a backpack.

 

A 5,000 baht reward was offered for the return of the phone.

On Saturday afternoon, Sanook reported that the couple had been arrested at Chiang Mai airport.

 

Police were able to trace the couple, who still had possession of the stolen phone, by using the Find My iPhone feature to reveal the location of the iPhone.

 

Sanook said the couple were French teachers aged in their 50s and that they were refusing to cooperate with Thai police, saying they would only speak to French embassy officials.

 Throw them in the slammer whilst waiting for the French embassy officials to appear.

Let the buggers rot, they wouldnt co-operate with the police.

They will only speak to embassy officials, good that should take a while, give them time to ponder their disgusting act.

lol...Im sure the French embassy staff ( well the French Consul in CM anyway) are going to bend over backwards to get em out of this.

 

It will be "here is a list of lawyers that you should contact and we will come back and see you in a week or 2"

 

Why do people who do idiotic things think that it is the embassies job to get em out of the <deleted> they got themselves into.

Now we all can let out a sigh of relief that the arch criminals were caught

and the country is back to be what it was before this heinous crime, a

lawful and obedient country...

I am glad that this pair of lowlifes have been caught. I wonder how long it will be until the Embassy explain to them that there is no help coming from them and that they are about to enjoy a 12 month extension to their holiday in Thailand, sadly for them of course, at a hotel with no stars, and where the bellboys will be somewhat lippy.:smile:

More quality west European tourists.

Seriously though many of these pieces of trash get a free pass because of where they hail from.

If you steal..you are a thief.

Thieves are criminals and should be turfed out poste haste.

Thailand has enough of its problems without having to deal with this detritus from overseas

Well for once i agree with you.

Your last paragraph is a little perplexing though, as you are always spouting on about how perfect things are here, yet here you are saying Thailand has enough problems, bit of a change coming from you.

Congratulations on the recovery and the timing of apprehending these French thieves  before they hopped it.

Is that a reference to frogs legs?

What exact point are you attempting to make, what a weird post, I am certain if you had your 1200EURO iPhone stolen by these scumbags you'd be wanting them caught and punished, a crime is a crime
