Possibly the same woman responsible for the previous purse thief in Pattaya has once again struck, this time targeting a bag containing 100,000 baht worth of valuable items and 20,000 baht cash within a Pattaya bar during the late hours of today, May 21st.
At 00.06 AM today, a Thai woman, Ms. Pattama Hansaer, filed a report with an investigator at the Pattaya Police Station, alleging her bag which contained four gold amulets, two gold rings, and several important documents worth 100,000 baht, and 20,000 baht in cash, had been stolen by an unidentified woman.
The 61-year-old victim told police that the theft took place at the Chick-N-Coop Bar on Pattaya Second Road within the Nongprue sub-district of Pattaya’s Banglamung district. Ms. Pattama filed a report to Pattaya Police along with a CCTV recording within the bar.
Her daughter, Ms. Pan Pongsopitsilp, 44, told police that the culprit walked into the bar while her mother went into the bathroom. The thief, a slender and dark-skinned woman, then took advantage of that moment to grab Ms. Pattama’s purse left in a drawer inside the bar area proper before fleeing.
The incident was similar to the previous thief case against another female bar patron, Mrs. Siriphon Bussadee, 48. The Thai woman filed a report with Pattaya Police on Friday night, May 19th, claiming her 40,000-baht purse and multiple expensive items had been stolen from a bar counter while she went to the bathroom.
Based on CCTV footage and the hypothesis of the Pattaya Police, the suspect in this case is believed to be the same slim-built woman in today’s case.
Law enforcement officers are working on both cases but the suspect is still at large.
