Hundreds of thousand of baht's worth of goods and cash were stolen in the burglary.

 

Huay Luang police are investigating after they were called by Swiss national Manfred Raiser, 68 and his Thai wife Monthicha, 58.

 

Two Swiss bought notebooks worth 35,000 baht each were taken from the bedroom.

Who in their right mind would have all that money/watches/ computers just lying around?

Why no bars on the windows?

Bit iffy i think, maybe a burglary but the amounts upped for insurance purposes.

Would be quite naive.

Why not at least have a safe?

Looks like a nice insurance claim coming up.

Not necessarily.

Swiss with a nice pool villa.

May well be that they were naive enough to let that much lye open or in a cabinet.

And the numbers are less than excessive.

Who lives in a house in Thailand without window bar.

 

I live in a secure housing estate, I have window bars.

 

I do for one - apart from them looking terrible they are also very dangerous should one have a fire.

Luckily the Mood Baan we live is safe unlike many others in and around Udon

Point taken regarding fires and cosmetics.

 

Fires aren't as common here as much of the house is concrete and brick - not a lot to burn.

I do not understand why highlight this incident while there were 100s in other towns and cities around Thailand?

Or Other cases are not as worthy as this couple? F.R.P
