If you are flying, you need to look like your passport photo. When entering Thailand through an airport we all pose for a photo at Immigration. Maybe they were caught by name recognition.

You guys need to read up....they were caught by the iPhone tracker.

Beggars belief that people would be that stupid with most places having CCTV

deserve what is coming to them 

all this does is get Europeans a bad name from some Thais 

Especially stooping so low to steal a mobile phone must be hard up for cash

I hope the thieves get at least a few months in jail but my guess is most likely a fine and they will be on there way.

You are wasting your time there mate.

 

Some will just continue to ignore what is reported and believe that the two thieves were identified by facial recognition but then the woman grew a beard and the man took his glasses off. This led the taxi driver to report the man's odd behavior by mistaking a passing elephant for his Toyota Altis and insisting Jumbo switch its meter on..

 

The Police took fingerprints on the elephant's tail and identified them via Interpool as being notorious international mobile phone thieves..and the pair were lured into an impromptu 3some by an undercover female special forces police ranger. With the suspects' excretions in her mouth the officer was able to keep the specimens warm and spat them out into plastic bags to be used in the up cumming court case.....

 

For any that disbelieve such special constables exist they can be easily identified when in uniform as, instead of a parachute and wings, they have the lips and tongue logo from The Rolling Stones' Sticky Finger album..

Darn, now my dreams about all the beautiful French ladies is shattered. After watching that video I think I may have been misled. My late great father told me how beautiful all the French ladies were during WW2. Now I suspect while marching across France, he may have developed a drinking problem and had one to many bottles of Vino.

But as the country and western song goes, the girls all get prettier at closing time.

Agree! which is the flaw in Jingthing's insistence on facial recognition....Not even a randy goat could manage a facial in this case.....or have I totally misunderstood what he was referring to...????

I believe the original post stated that it was an office that they'd gone into to use the toilet, so they deserve everything they get as we are all caught short sometimes and hope to rely on someone's' hospitality, they have possibly reduced that by at least one. The office worker had a right to leave their phone unattended in their working environment as they obviously trusted their workers and these pair came along and didn't do much towards Thai/farlang relationships. Some time in Thai nick will help the chubby one slim a bit and wiil certainly teach these 2 educators a good lesson.
Best comment. I am ever so grateful when anyone allows me to use their 'facilities'. These people repaid their kindness by stealing from them. They are despicable.

Curious about how they were caught at the airport.

I'm assuming they were dumb and traveling together and didn't alter their appearance by dying their hair or anything.

They had a clear video so easy to catch that way.

But are the Thai police using facial recognition technology? 

Suppose they had split up and traveled on different flights and dyed their hair. Would they still have been caught? 

 

You must be joking 555

 

Thai police and technology in the same sentence :-)

There is a certain amount of negligence on the woman's part who owns the phone, place it on a footpath anywhere here, how long do you think it would stay there?, do you also persecute who ever picks it up?

granted this was not on a footpath but on a couch in an office, when people see something of value unattended the evil within takes over, [not everyone but certainly not the minority] then the regret later when it's too late, they could have handled it better by offering the young lady compensation and and apology , probably would have been allowed to resume their journey out of chiang mai with a bit of luck.

In the UK there is a law that you may be prosecuted by..Called "Stealing by finding"..
