A female German pensioner gave chase when a sweet seller stole her wallet while she was sunbathing on Jomtien beach yesterday evening. 

 

Doris Bircher, 66, (name transliterated from Thai) said she was with a friend keeping one eye open on her possessions when the thief made off with her wallet that contained 1,040 baht and 20 Euros. 

 

She got to her feet and gave chase shouting "Thief!" and this alerted a Thai man called Siraphop Kanthan, 49, who was walking nearby. 

 

He managed to grab Decha Seubbut, 31, and put him in a headlock before police arrived. 

 

Decha admitted everything and said the money was for his mum. 

 

Naew Na said that Decha had just got out of jail for doing the same thing and was now in custody again.

 

They said he was a sweet seller who would watch to see if tourists were sleeping then make off with their property.

Well done Siraphop Kanthan.

We should all learn the Thai word for 'Thief' in case we need it!

It couldn't have been an early morning theft because if it were the thief would have only have found German towels on the chairs  😀

Nether found a problem in Thailand with our German cousins bagging the deak chairs before us brits get up.

 

Probably because it is we and them do not spend most of the day (when we get up) around hotel pools.

 

The other problem is the Spaniards overfilling hotels and skimping on pool furniture.
