Na Jomtien Police Arrest Siblings for Motorcycle Theft

Sattahip —

Na Jomtien police have arrested a gang of three Thai people (two of them are siblings) who were allegedly responsible for stealing a motorcycle from an ex-Marine in Sattahip. The arrest took place at 2 PM today, June 10th, 2024.

A video of the arrest can be seen on our YouTube channel here.

According to the police, on June 8th, Mr. Kittidet Thotsaking, a 24-year-old former Marine at the Sattahip Naval Base, filed a police report at the Na Jomtien Police Station after his Honda Wave 125 motorcycle was stolen from the front of his apartment in the Eua Arthorn Village in the Na Jomtien sub-district of Sattahip district, Chonburi province.

Police immediately launched an investigation and reviewed CCTV footage from the area. The footage revealed a couple of male and female suspects riding a Honda MSX motorcycle into the village. The male suspect then dragged Mr. Kittidet’s motorcycle out of the parking lot, with the female suspect driving the MSX. The couple then drove away from the village.

Police tracked down the stolen motorcycle to Mr. Animit Phutphongsai, 37. The man was believed to have purchased the stolen vehicle from the couple for 3,000 baht. Mr. Animit was then arrested, and he led police to the two suspects, later identified as Ms. Phanitta, 25, and Mr. A (real name withheld). Mr. A was only 16 years old.

It was understood that Ms. Phanitta and Mr. A are siblings, and they reportedly admitted to stealing the motorcycle from the ex-Marine. They said that they had only intended to steal the motorcycle’s gasoline, but after seeing that the motorcycle was not locked, they decided to steal the vehicle as well because they were out of money and unemployed.

The siblings and their buyer are currently being detained by Na Jomtien police for legal proceedings. The stolen motorcycle was returned to the victim.
