Two motorbike thieves nabbed in Phuket

Two men have been arrested in Phuket last night. They’ve been charged with stealing motorcycles and then reselling them.

 

One of the arrested men is an unemployed 36 year old tour bus driver. According to police, he was able to convince a 21 year old accomplice, who was his neighbour, to help him steal the motorcycles,. The stolen motorbikes were then delivered to a shop where they were disassembled and the spare parts sold to a ‘dealer’.

 

The former bus driver has admitted to the crime and has been assisting local Phuket police with their enquiries.

 

“I have been jobless for several months and I was desperate.”

Somehow I feel this is going to be a more common occurrence in the foreseeable future here with the economy and Baht the way it is. Not condoning it in any form, but desperation can lead to bad decisions.

Start of an avalanche of opportunist crime to come.... this year will see many unemployed resorting to anything to make some money.

I hope they go after the shop owner and the "dealer" they all need to be taken out of the loop.

Some on here have been saying this very same thing for 10+ years already. So far none of it happening.
