A British man who received a 60,000 baht gold necklace as a gift from his wife saw it ripped from his neck by thieves just three hours later.
Darren James Hall, 37, and Anothai Hall, 29, filed a complaint with police July 10, saying that while they were walking from a South Pattaya market where she bought the 3-baht-weight necklace, two youths in sportswear drove by on a motorbike and snatched the thick chain from Darren’s neck.
Police quickly mobilized, but were unable to find the thieves. They are now checking CCTV footage to try and track them down.
Darren and Anothai Hall file a report with police, filling in details of the gold snatch and run.
