All the bags were reported stolen by foreign tourists but, because the victims likely already returned home, none were claimed, leaving police with no victims to identify the suspects as the thieves.

Instead, all three men were drug-tested. Banglamung Hospital confirmed all had been using methamphetamines and the suspects were charged with use of a Class 1 narcotic.
