3 arrested for burglary of Irish expat’s Pattaya house

PATTAYA:--Three people have been arrested for the May 4 burglary of an Irishman’s house in East Pattaya.

 

Wasan Panpream, 26, Rachata Kumsart, 37, and Napaporn Pradub, 27, were apprehended in Nakhon Pathom. Police announced their arrest May 15 and displayed 56,760 baht in cash recovered along with about 6-baht-weight in gold jewelry and amulets. Authorities also seized their pickup truck, motorbike and mobile phones.

 

Wasan and Rachata were charged with burglarizing the Lakeview Exclusive Villa home of Christopher Knight, 69, ransacking the house and prying open the safe containing 13,000 euros (462,800 baht).

 

Illustrating their contempt for Knight’s home security system, they ripped out the closed-circuit TV server and tossed alarm equipment into the pool, police said.


The two suspects claimed the house was left unlocked.

 

Following the burglary, the pair then fled to the Nakhon Pathom house of his Rachata’s wife, Napaporn, who was charged with harboring a fugitive and being an accomplice to the crime.

So 462,000 Baht gone, and 56.000 recovered with some gold. Good work by the BIB to catch then but they must have been having one hell of a good time to have spunked the rest in such short order.

Sell their pickup, hand the dosh over to Pat...😋

Ah, that is o.k. then, must be the owners fault. He left the house open so we thought we could help ourselves.

Great job by the RTP!

And what do you honestly think cracked the case???

A fingerprint on the window or a couple of cops requesting an "investigation fee"?

OK, if a random house robbing job then fine but often these are not random jobs despite what bile the perps spout. However:  

1. Don't buy a safe with hinges on the outside as that's for muppets.

2. There is a reason we have things called banks ... QED

3. If you do buy a not-too-big sized personal safe then you have to think about who actually knows you have it/where it is and how you buy it plus get it to your house. You don't just pop down HomePro and buy one, then swipe your points card through after putting it on your credit card and then have them deliver it to your house and plonk it in your bedroom or office, then tip the deliver guys as that would mean many many know where it is. Suggest buy it cash and no ID plus carting it away in a truck on your lonesome involving as few people as possible.

I stand by my opinion.  I have been in a cop shop office in Jomtien and witnessed a fat, desk-bound cop ask for 10,000 baht to prosecute a car thief who had been caught red handed.
