CHIANG MAI: -- A Chinese thief "fishing" for money from a temple donation box suffered instant retribution on Tuesday.

 

After he was spotted using a string and glue covered plates to hook money from the box he was chased in the temple and fell down the stairs breaking his left leg.

 

However, his friend on lookout duty got away.

 

Police arrested thirty one year old Wei Zengguang on the steps of Wat Thatu Doi Kham in Mau Hiya sub district.

 

On his person and in a backpack was a whole host of evidence including more than 50,000 baht in Thai banknotes, string, plates covered in glue and bankbooks.

 

Wei had pretended to be making merit at the temple but after checking that no one was around used his string and glue to fish for money from the donation box.

 

But he was seen along with his friend who was a lookout. Some people managed to grab them but they broke free and fled the scene. A man called Wei Renggu got away but the other man fell down the "serpent" stairs and broke his leg, reported Thai Rath.

 

He was taken to hospital and has been charged with theft from a religious establishment.

 

Now the hunt is on for his accomplice.

 bank books?  Seems like odd things for "tourists" to have.  Whose bank books?  imposters making withdrawals?  Making deposits into their agent's accounts as payment for what, keeping them out of jail?

Where the money came from is besides the point

If he was starving and needed some money for food , you could have some sympathy for his plight and have some understandings of his actions.

You dont seem to have understood my point .

I did say "IF" he was starving and he had no money to buy any food .

But as he had a lot of money on him, this quite clearly wasnt the case

OK I understand your point but I do not care one iota why he did id , the fact that he stole and as I said "from a temple" just puts him into a scum category,I repeat----- Put him behind bars End of story.
