A man was arrested on Friday (September 11) for allegedly robbing drunk people when they were asleep.

 

 

Ban Chang police in Rayong province arrested Pongsakorn (last name withheld) aged 41, after a victim reported to police about being robbed and investigation pointed to the accused.

 

Police said that the victim was drunk after visiting an entertainment venue. He decided to park the car for sleeping and found his belongings stolen.

 

After interrogation, Pongsakorn reportedly confessed to committing robbery on several occasions.

 

The accused, a taxi biker, reportedly said that he targeted mostly drunk persons who had parked their vehicles for sleeping. The accused said he would first try to awake them. In case, the men continued sleeping, he robbed them.

Pongsakorn reportedly also told police that he had sold his victims’ belongings for cash. The man was charged with robbery.

There are scores of bars that practise this technique and quite shamefacedly.  I stopped going to one when I realised I was being short-changed by the mamasan on a regular basis.

"There are scores of bars that practise this technique and quite shamefacedly". 

You're claiming the the owners/managers of bars plan to rob their drunk customers after they've left the premises in their vehicles?  Seriously? 

 

Presumably, you mean "quite unashamedly", the opposite of "quite shamefacedly"!

I used to frequent a bar in Bangkok and drink with an old friend who was ex-Royal Navy. he strongly suspected that the mamasan/lady in charge of the check bins would drop extra slips in your check-bin when you got pished (inevitably), which he called "Depth Charges"😀

She was dubbed "The UnaBomber".😊

Why does anyone deserve to get robbed? They were sleeping off their drunken state, not driving!

I bet they were still drunk when they woke up and continued to drive.

In the UK, if you're just in the car with the keys I believe you can be done for 'being drunk in charge of a vehicle', even if the engine ain't running, and you haven't been, or will not be driving.

(Someone will correct me if I'm wrong).
