Ladmia was wanted for allegedly removing a safe from the Eurasia Hotel June 1 after surreptitiously obtaining a key to a room rented by Kuwaitis Fahad Hamdan Marzoug, 23, and Khaled Mahamed, 29.
Police finally caught Nadir Ladmia after he had been hiding amongst clothing racks in a local mall.
The Algerian was then able to walk out of the hotel with the safe in a bag. In the safe was 27,000 baht, notebook computer, passports, credit cards and other documents.
Before the Kuwaitis canceled their bank cards, police said, Ladmia removed 208,000 baht from their bank accounts.
Ladmia’s departure on his motorbike was captured by closed-circuit television cameras, but he was not located until June 14, when a friend of the victims told police they had seen him on Soi Buakaow.
Police responded, pursuing the suspect to the beachfront mall, where he hid among clothing racks for two hours before being caught.
