I just had a chat with my wife.. she uses a number of gas cylinders.. There are 2 grades of gas cylinders .. a cheap one costs 2,000 Bt new... a better one 2,300 or a bit more..  Sell second hand 900 Bt.. They are not stealing for the gas.. they steal to re-sell the cylinders..

I see the big hitters solved another serious crime that was destroying the fabric of our society. They even asked her to point at the gas cylinder, in case you don't realize that's a gas cylinder. 

Meanwhile another poor girl, who accidentally stole a little rice, gets a Serbian citizenship, a 10 year UK Visa and a residence in Dubai from bro. I've never seen her pointing at rice though. Must be a mishap.
