Thai national caught shortly after dropping his ID card while robbing a jewelry store in Bangkok

Bangkok –

A food delivery man was captured this evening, November 4, in Bangkok shortly after reportedly stealing 2 gold necklaces, worth more than 110,000 baht, and haplessly dropping his own ID card at a jewelry store.

Officers from the Klongton Police Station arrived at the scene this morning after receiving a theft report at a jewelry and gold store located inside the Tesco Lotus shopping center in the Phattanakarn district of Bangkok.

According to a shop employee, an alleged thief, who was reportedly wearing a long-sleeved white shirt with a hat and a mask, had entered the store and asked to see two 2-baht gold necklaces, pretending to make a purchase.

The man reportedly snatched the necklaces and was seen in the CCTV quickly leaving the shopping center with a motorcycle while the employee was calculating the price.

Police inspectors then began examination around the shop and found an identification card left on the floor. A group of Klongton Police then followed the address indicated in the ID card and found the alleged thief within a short time.

Pathomphong Sukanaen, 34, was taken to the police station where he allegedly confessed to committing theft at the gold shop, claiming that he was working as a food delivery man but the career did not pay him back enough to pay for his debt and then decided to steal a couple of gold necklaces.

He was initially charged for snatch theft and detained at the police station for legal proceedings.
