Police are hunting two foreign tourists who stole a bicycle from a restaurant in Songkhla.

 

Pradit Muninam, 49, reported the theft to police. He described the antique bike, which was used for decoration at his restaurant, as 'priceless'.

 

CCTV footage showed the theft during the early hours of Tuesday morning.

 

The clips show one of the men waiting outside the shop while the other helps himself to the bike.

 

 

However, local media in Hat Yai reported that the pair returned in the early hours of Wednesday and tried to steal another bike but were scared off.

 

Police are now searching for the men.

 

Mr Pradit said he hopes the police finds them and that they are charged.

As soon as you see the front fork brackets you know it’s just an old Indian (or possibly Chinese ?) bike, not worth much, loads down south and especially Penang.

If it was so valuable why did the thief easily move it out of the shop; it wasnt secured.

Yes, the problem is the owner exaggerating the value, not that people stole it.

Adds piquancy to the article, who's gonna care about some rusty old boneshaker, wouldn't surprise me if the reporter hadn't "elicited" this little nugget to spice up a rather humdrum story.

Nice to hear that you do your best to defend a criminal act made by a fellow foreigner. Your failing miserable, though. :clap2:

The fact that they came back and tried to steal another bike proves that it wasn't some drunken prank.

 

That exacerbates the whole thing. There are serial thieves in your midst.

in Europe, bikes like the one shown in the video cost about 8000 to 10000 baht. that's for bikes that aren't particularly rare.

Doeas it matter if the bike is worth 10 million baht or 1 baht? It is wrong of foreigners to come to Thailand and steal as well as act like total <deleted>. I think that´s the point of the news.

I didn’t condone or excuse their stupid  actions but merely stated that the bike prolly wasn’t worth much. Seems you misinterpreted my post.
