77kaoded said in their headline that snatch thieves were on the rampage in Pattaya after a Russian woman was robbed. 

 

Elena, 25, was attending to the needs of her three year old daughter in a pram as they returned to their hotel room in Soi Wat Bunkanjanaram. 

 

She showed a picture on her phone of her wearing gold necklaces - two of which valued at 55,000 baht were stolen. 

 

A witness to the robbery said that her husband was wheeling the pram down the soi when they stopped for the wife to attend to the child. 

 

A man on a lady's motorcycle rode up and grabbed the tourist's jewelry as she was bending over. 

 

The thief sped off into the night. Thais at the scene helped call the police. 

 

Pol Capt Jenrop radioed ahead but the thief was well gone. 

 

Snatch theft - especially of gold necklaces - continues to be a problem in Pattaya with frequent reports of such crime, notes Thaivisa.

The thief was obviously watching them and waiting for an opportunity to grab them and they don't discriminate nationality of those they steal from either .

the high season is arrived and also more robbers are coming to Pattaya. Last night sitting on a bar at VIP Complex on Naklua road I was approached by 5 or 6 vendors of flowers and other crazy stuffs, the touched my back and I suppose was only for claim claim attention but instead they work step by step to steal my money.

Went to report at police but only get advice to be careful next time.

I advice everybody to take care of any vendors that approach to you. they work as a team and if anyone touch you is a sign of a start of the stealing.

Maybe the school of ladyboys had made proselytes

What's that got to do with it?

1 theft reported does not make it a "rampage" in my book. If they had more robberies to report, perhaps. But doing so might harm Thailand's image.

Expect much more of this as the recession bites.

As the Thai Economy contract these kind of petty snatch thefts and so on are starting to increase

I never heard about this in Chiang Mai. Pattaya is not the place to show your valuables.
