A Chonburi man already arrested, tried, convicted and having served out his light sentences six times for gold-snatching robberies was busted yet again in South Pattaya.

Police easily captured Sutin Srisook, 20, after he left his motorbike at a point in the woods near Soi Kophai 10 where he fled on foot following the alleged robbery of a 50,000-baht gold chain from Manita Rattanadawruang, 40, July 30.

The suspected thief, who goes by the nickname “Joke” had a laugh at officers as he was again slapped in irons. He said he’d been arrested already six times yet was already walking the streets again, so a seventh bust was “no big deal.”

Sutin even did police a favor, ratting out his alleged partner, Patcharapong Uam-urb, 23. Police picked him up at a rental room on Soi Buakaow were they also recovered 10 motorbikes, two of which were being disassembled.
