Broken CCTV cameras impede Sattahip necklace-snatch investigation


Broken CCTV cameras are making it difficult for Sattahip police to find a man who snatched a 2-baht-weight necklace from a local restaurateur.

Siriporn Hongthong, 28, called police to Soi Bonkai in front of Wat Pah Yup June 18. She told officers that she had gone to buy cooking equipment at the Sahachai Market and rode back to her restaurant. She believes the necklace snatcher followed her and grabbed the 40,000-baht chain when he got a chance.

The victim said the suspect was around 30 years old and thin. She could only remember a partial license plate number. But police who normally count on closed-circuit television cameras to identify thieves said all the cameras in the area were broken.
