Diana Lyn Lopez, 30, was found fighting off security guards at the Super Sport outlet Jan. 18 who were pulling on a pink body suit commonly worn by beach volleyball players. She was taken to Pattaya Police Station for processing.
An employee of the sportswear shop holds the swimsuit while pointing to the hapless shoplifter at the Pattaya police station.
Sales clerk Patcharee Aimpracha told police Lopez had requested three swimsuits to try on, but allegedly only returned two. When she tried to leave the store, the panicked clerk sent mall security after her. They caught up to Lopez on the beach across from the Soi 9 mall and forced her to return to disrobe and face police.
