PHUKET: -- A British tourist was arrested and charged with theft yesterday after stealing a tuk-tuk driver’s wallet and other possessions from inside the taxi's cab while it was parked in Karon last week. 

After reporting the theft to Karon police on Saturday, the tuk-tuk driver, Tawatchai Namwong, posted a warning about the pilfering farang on social media. 

The post read: ‘A foreigner in a white car drove up and parked behind my tuk-tuk while I stepped into a Family Mart outlet in Karon. I had not locked my vehicle. The man opened the driver’s side door and stole my ATM card, driving licence and other documents. Please be very careful and lock your car door every time in order to protect your belongings.’

And yet the daylight robbery these same tuk tuk drivers perpetrate with their overpriced fares and boorish behaviour when on duty everyday goes completely unpunished.

Another fail for the BIB. And am not saying this idiot deserved to get his stuff stolen, but not locking his door is a pretty dumb move by any standards

Whenever I think I have learned about the worst farang lowlifes and scumbags there is another superlative.

 

 

Well it was inevitable. Once you allow economic refugees in the country, crime is bound to escalate. Maybe allow visa exempt entries only for G6 countries.

Some Brits need a new country to be losers in.  Not a week goes by without a new thread like this.  Sorry to affect the thin skinned ones.  

 

Well that didn't take long before the thread degenerated to its usual level

Presumably you mean the Thai bashing comments posted by some in an attempt to divert attention from the miscreant in the O/P.

Stealing from one of the most upstanding members of society. How low can you get?

In addition to the theft, he should be charged for whatever that is that appears to be on his head.

Reminds me of the hat Elmer Fudd wears in Bugs Bunny cartoons

Is this son of Elmer???
