Thief steals motorbike in front of convenience store in the Pattaya area

Banglamung –

A thief stole a motorbike from a staffer in front of a convenience store in Banglamung this past Sunday (February 6th).

Ms. Wachira Inthasing, 32, a staffer of a convenience store, told The Pattaya News with CCTV footage, “My motorbike was in front of the convenience store at the entrance of Soi Toonglom Talman, Nongprue, while I was working inside. The motorbike was locked.”

“Three men on a motorbike stopped in front of the convenience store before one of them managed to unlock my motorbike very quickly,” Wachira explained.

“I was very sad because it took me a long time to save money before I could buy the motorbike. I have already filed a report to the Nongprue Police. I went to the press also as I am hoping for some more publicity on who possibly took my bike.” Wachira stated.

Nongprue police are reportedly looking into the incident and have warned Pattaya area residents that motorbike thieves remain active in the area, partially driven by a still-fragile economy due to Covid-19 restrictions that have still hurt Pattaya’s bread and butter tourism industry, accountable for an estimated 85% percent of the local GDP in normal times.
