Airport police arrested a Belgian man for theft after he returned to Suvarnabhumi with the bag he stole from a Chinese tourist on New Year's Day. 

 

Patrick Coulier, 57, has been charged with theft from an airport. He has admitted many such thefts.

 

On January 1st he stole a suitcase from Cai Zhe, 30, who had arrived on Air China. The bag contained two jade items worth 64,000 baht, a Gucci belt valued at 17,000 baht and clothes - the total value was 103,000 baht. 

 

Coulier was arrested on a warrant as he attempted to leave for Vietnam from Suvarnabhumi. He was in possession of the original bag that he had stolen. 

 

It was discovered that he had been through the airport 27 times and he admitted to many similar thefts. 

 

He has been detained while authorities have contacted the Chinese tourist. 

 

Thai Rath did not report the recovery of the items except the bag itself.

I'm sure you can't believe it, but there are actual people who can afford 103.00 baht of clothes and accessory.
