A convicted thief recently released from prison has been arrested for allegedly stealing a motorbike from a South Pattaya home.
Narong Maleethes, 29, of Chachoengsao, was apprehended by a neighbor on Soi Wat Thamsamakkee 4, Aug. 14. Police charged with him theft.
Victims point to Narong Maleethes, confirming he is the one who stole their motorcycle.
Police said Narong confessed to stealing a purple-and-white Yamaha Fino owned by Duanphen Chatsuwan, 21, after she parked it in front of her sister’s house and left the key in the ignition. Narong left his old motorbike behind.
According to police, Narong said he’d come to Pattaya only four days ago, but was abandoned by friends, had no money and was sleeping on Pattaya Beach. So he borrowed an old bike to scout the area for easy-to-steal motorbikes.
He told police he’d recently been released from prison where he’d been incarcerated for previous thefts.
