Pattaya Woman Finds Her Stolen Motorbike on Online Second-Hand Market

Pattaya —

A Thai woman was left perplexed after finding her stolen motorbike listed on a second-hand Facebook group, just a few hours after it had been stolen.

23-year-old Ms. Amphika Sisena told The Pattaya News that she was shocked to discover her prized possession being advertised by an unknown seller on Facebook.

The young woman explained that an unidentified Thai man stole her motorbike on October 17th. The theft occurred at a department store on Soi Khao Noi in the Nongprue area, Banglamung district, Chonburi province. The incident was recorded on a surveillance camera.

To her dismay, Ms. Amphika said that only six hours later after the incident, she saw her motorbike being advertised for sale by a Facebook user named “Good Jakkapan.” The bike was listed on the Buy-Sell Unregistered Motorcycles Facebook group, where many photos of motorcycles were posted for sale.

The victim immediately reported the incident to the Nongprue Police Station, hoping that the police would track down the perpetrator and return her motorcycle.

She also shared her frustration, mentioning that without her bike, she now had no means of transportation for work. Additionally, she believed that this particular thief had been responsible for multiple incidents in Pattaya, as she observed that the perpetrator frequently posted pictures of stolen motorcycles for sale in various groups.

The thief deleted their post of Ms. Amphika’s motorbike as well as their Facebook account. Police are tracing their digital footprint but the name of the account is believed to be fake.
