Light fingered foreigners on the rampage in Krabi

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.
 

Not necessarily, it really depends on how greedy the thieves are.... If they stay too long and get greedy with the pickings they may get caught, but it takes time for surveillance to catch up - so if you come -- make a few good targets... then leave and onto the next country -- it can be safer than just staying in one country (your home) where everytime you do it you roll the dice but sooner or later it comes up craps.

 

Just don't do it in a sharia country or you might become the one handed bandit!

Well to me they look a bit too chunky for Thais - working out- which is always de regueur for low life shop lifters.

Be interested to know if Thais steal more per head than 'foreigners' - though I think I can presume the 'adjusted' answer

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. "

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

I had a Thai friend who was born in the US, so his parents named him saharat lol

No. They are different issues.

Looks like you need to re-read the word "deflection"...

 

His whole point was that they are different issues 😂

Except that Saharat means USA in Thai language.  But could probably also be a Thai name.

I wonder if the local thieves were just feeling outclassed ?   " Do they have a work permit " ?????

Last time i went to Krabi we were Royally robbed on one of Songserms buses with the little trap door. The bus crew insisted all bags went underneath in stowage, then when we arrived in Krabi we found out that our bags had been robbed of anything valuable by the little sneaky barstuard climbing inside the hold. I went back to the Bus company had it out with the staff and was told it was the "Mafia" that was controlling the buses and it wouldn't be wise to say anything....... low life..... I wonder if these lads do buses as well, or is that just a Thai racket ?

Always keep valuables with, in a backpack or fanny pack.
