Krabi shop owner: Watch out for thieving foreign tourists

An exasperated  Krabi shop owner has issued a warning to retailers after two foreigners entered her Ao Nang shop and stole a bikini. 

 

It was the fourth time that Netdao, 34, had had clothes pinched from the shelves. 

 

She did not report the theft to police but CCTV footage circulating on social media was clear, said Sanook. 

 

It showed two women browsing for underwear before one slips the 500 baht bikini into a shoulder bag and the pair exit the shop. 

 

Netdao installed the cameras after three previous thefts and warned other shop keepers to keep a close watch for thieving foreigners.

That means the shop owner lost 50 baht?

But by posting on social media got more coverage than if they had reported to the police.

If the thief had been Thai would the footage have been posted on social media?

Undoubtably some visitors to the Kingdom will steal. Undoubtably the Thais increase price for the visitors every chance they get for goods and services. The RTP will not arrest the Thai thieves but the visitors are playing a dangerous game.

...not condoning theft in the least....

 

...shameful and disgusting....and it gives all honest foreigners a harder time here....

 

...but....

 

....as I have been told....some foreigners get tired of being fleeced at every turn....

 

....double-pricing....and overpricing....is not honorable either...

I would say 0.1% of foreigners would steal while in Thailand but 99.9% of Thais would steal,lie,cheat,scam,rob anyone while on holiday.its seems to be in their blood and a natural thing to do and a way of life.

Maybe to an extent that's what it appears like in pattaya but Thais like all nations have many decent people.

Could this be a repost of an old story? It sounds awfully familiar from about a year ago.
