Thai media went to Jomtien beach to investigate after a musician posted on Facebook that a Thai man had run off with all the money being handed out to a queue of desperate people by a farang in Jomtien.

 

Thiwa P. , 57, said that the queue stretched from a hotel past his shop on the sea front yesterday morning.

 

Everything was going fine until someone he thought was a motorcycle taxi rider or win grabbed all the foreigner's money.

 

It looked like about 10,000 baht he said. 

 

People gave chase as the thief ran off but he got away. Thiwa filmed the aftermath, he was notnin time to catch the incident on his phone.

He told one31 reporters at the scene later that it was embarrassing for Thai people that anyone should do such a thing. 

 

"It's terrible - everyone is in a bad way then this happens".

 

The media said no report had yet been made to the Pattaya police.

Scumbag.
Where are the police when you need them. They should have been in attendance to ensure social distancing, then there would have been an outside chance of him being caught.

If they were notified. Jomtiem sounding a little unsafe these days.

And let the Thai bashing commence......This would happen at any giving city anywhere in today's world not only in Asia and in Thailand.

That doesn't make the scum who snatch the money any less scummy...  When reading 'citiyanywherevisa.com' and reading of such news you could comment that this also occurs in Thailand !!!!

This article is about Pattaya, Thailand and not "any giving city anywhere...". That being said, it is a pathetic act, and yes, pathetic if it happened in any city.
