A Thai-Swedish woman, 27, revealed on Saturday, October 22nd, that her house in Soi Map Song, Nong Yai Moo 11 in Nong Prue subdistrict, Banglamung district, was robbed with a total loss of nearly 500,000 baht while many of her neighbours were also robbed in the past year or two.
This follows the complaints from more than 10 villagers who told local reporters that there were thieves in the villages frequently stealing a number of their belongings of their residents, causing fear to local villagers. They, therefore, asked the police to help track down and arrest the culprits for legal prosecution.
One of the victims, Marisa Haapalainen, told reporters that her house was robbed on February 5th, 2021, while nobody was home. A number of tools, electrical appliances, two televisions, and a gas tank were stolen as well as some cash, clothes, and shoes. The total value of the stolen items were nearly 500,000 baht, according to her statement.
The 27-year-old victim also urged the officials to conduct a serious investigation as no arrest had been done after one year.
“I’m still living in fear nowadays, and worried all the time even though I’m in the house. I immediately wake up to a sound of footsteps or cracking. I wish not to have the stolen things back, but I just wanted to feel safe again,” Marisa told reporters.
