A couple’s house in Phuket province was broken into on Saturday while they were admitted to a hospital due to Covid-19.

 

The assets that were stolen include a gold necklace, a gold ring, five gold bracelets, two bags and cash valued at Bt100,000.

 

Police were notified immediately after the family recovered from the coronavirus and returned to their home – only see that their house was ransacked.

 

One of the family members told officers that she was infected with Covid-19 and was admitted to a local hospital on April 4, while her husband followed her on April 7, leaving the house unprotected.

 

The police collected evidence at the scene, including fingerprints and the DNA of the thieves and sent them for forensic examination. The suspects have been interrogated while an investigation is being conducted.

Yep, and there is no insurance company in the world that would have an insurance that would cover with the look of that room.

One would actually guess that there would be nothing there worth bending up the door for.

 

The case is quite clear-cut for me using the little bit of common sense I´ve left. It might just be a lie all through, when I ask myself who lives like that with the combination of having 100k baht in a drawer? 🤣

Two bags with cash????? I can hold 1M baht between my thumb and long finger.

How to tell it had been ransacked.
 

They’ve been here too long and caught the ‘sickness’ - fill your living space with untold amounts of tat nobody needs.

Who could know where the gold is in that room. 🤔

Anyone who had time to ransack the empty house at their leisure would soon find out.

The report states that "the assets that were stolen include a gold necklace, a gold ring, five gold bracelets, two bags and cash valued at Bt100,000". 

 

It doesn't categorically say that there was B100K in cash but, more than likely, the suggestion was that all that was stolen was worth B100,000.  I think.  A comma could have made it clearer!

How on earth would they ever know if anything was missing with all that rubbish all over the place.

Yes the room looks too tidy up to have been ransacked... but who knows. It might be they thieves knew exactly what was what they were looking for. It happened to my teacher in Pattaya. The construction workers in the condo next to where they lived had direct sight to their condo unit. Apparently during many days they saw through the window their movements and knew quite accurately where they are putting their wallets and precious stuff. The thieves left footprints with a very exact and unique path from the balcony to the drawer where they stored money, wallets, etc. Also means is a good idea to put this stuff somewhere hidden and close the curtains every time you need to access it. Or put the wallet next to you, at least less chances to get robbed as they might not risk to go into the bedroom as much as they'd risk to go around your living room.
