A 41-year-old German man returned to Pattaya from Germany after Thailand’s reopening to tourists and the removal of the Test and Go program to find his Thai girlfriend allegedly stole his expensive Ducati motorbike and fled.
A 41-year-old German national, Mr. Peter (real name withheld by local reporters) contacted local reporters yesterday, June 3rd, about his missing Ducati motorbike which he kept in his condominium room in Pattaya where his Thai girlfriend previously stayed and blamed her for stealing it.
According to local reporters, Mr. Peter had recently returned to Pattaya on May 30th after Thailand’s reopening to tourists to “surprise” his Thai girlfriend “Fah”. He said that they had been in a relationship for two months, and he let her stay in his condominium room while he was back in Germany and could not get back due to travel difficulties regarding Covid-19.
But, once he arrived at his room, most of his properties were either missing or damaged including his safe which had been removed, two gold rings, a Vespa motorbike registration document, and his Ducati along with its documents. Mr. Peter also told local reporters that he found male underwear (not his) and garbage scattered all over his room including used condoms. His girlfriend Fah was also gone, he stated.
According to local reporters, Pol. Lt. Col. Saijai Kamchula from the Pattaya Police Station questioned Fah over the phone as requested by Mr. Peter. She claimed that she was in Kalasin province, but the Ducati was with her brother in Chanthaburi province. She said she would return it on June 1st, but Mr. Peter had still not received it as of press time. She did not provide reasoning to the press for her actions.
Initially, he filed a lawsuit and pressed charges against her for theft, and placed a 10,000 baht reward for his Ducati. Lt. Col. Saijai Kamchula stated to the press they would proceed forward with legal procedures.
