Foreigners who stole wooden elephant caught on Koh Phangan

Two foreign thieves - at least one believed to be an American - were arrested by police on Koh Phangan on Tuesday.

 

The men had earlier been caught on CCTV on Monday stealing a wooden elephant from out side the Happy Chang Noi restaurant on Koh Samui.

 

Details of the crime appeared on the Facebook page of Sasothon Somvung along with CCTV footage from several angles from outside the restaurant taken at night.

 

 

 

 

Two men - one black one white - can be seen casing the joint before trying to steal a big elephant. That appears too heavy so they make off with a smaller one.

 

The Facebook poster had appeal for help from friends, locals and police in solving the crime.

 

He found out that the men had rented a Toyota pick-up and one - 22 year old Andrew Corso - had left his US driving license at The Lodge in Bo Phut that is nearby the restaurant.

 

He resembled one of the thieves.

 

He claimed there were three involved though only two were seen on the CCTV.

 

Sasothon thanked everyone involved yesterday when police apprehended two of the men on Koh Pangan and recovered the wooden elephant.

 

There was no confirmation of the story from police.

 

Sasothon had earlier called for jail time for the foreign thieves.

Stolen elephant? By evil foreigners? This sounds like a job for Ong Bak.

Boozed up yanks who thought it would be funny to steal another's property.  Hopefully a few months in the Hilton will make them think.
