Light fingered foreigners on the rampage in Krabi

Light fingered foreigners on the rampage in Krabi

Sanook said that thieving foreigners were an increasing problem in Krabi.

 

Whether it is clothes, bikinis, bags or wallets the thieves just keep on coming. 

 

There are some arrests but in most cases as soon as the police get a lead the foreigners have gone home, said the Thai media. 

 

Tourist areas like Ao Nang and Phi Phi Island are rich picking grounds for the tourist thieves

 

The latest case was the theft of a bag belonging to a staff member on a pleasure boat.

 

A man in a white t-shirt and shorts was caught on onboard CCTV lifting a bag belonging to Saharat, 21.

 

He later reported the loss of the bag to the police - it contained his Thai ID, a phone, an ATM card and 5,000 baht among many other items. 

 

Sanook said the CCTV was clear getting a good image of the "nasty foreigner".

Seems crazy to break the law in a foreign country especially in this age of real-time surveillance and a camera can be in something as ordinary as a light bulb.

Definitely not excusing the theft - I hope they get caught and spend some time in prison thinking about it, but I wonder if old mate often carries the equivalent of ten days wages around with him or whether he saw a chance to get some compensation if the thief is caught...

I'm imagining a slightly sunburnt godzilla in some boardshorts and a Singha t-shirt rampaging through the markets stealing stuff...

Is this a deflection from the serious problem of air pollution that grips half the country?

 

No. They are different issues.

Sorry for not understanding your post but the owner of the bag is a twenty-one years old American man!

Could be yes, :biggrin: It would be funny if it was true. Thai or not I hope he will be caught.

It contained his Thai ID and his name was Saharat. Not exactly hallmarks of an American.
