A pair of Indian tourists lost more than 70,000 baht in cash and valuables when thieves broke into their South Pattaya hotel room.
Security at the four-star resort apparently never heard burglars smash the first-floor window and ransack the room belonging to Imran Haiber Haider, 38, and Bunden Kumar, 29. Police found their two beds were strewn with sliced open luggage and the rest of the room was in disarray.
The investigating officer inspects the area where the thieves broke in.
Missing in the burglary was $700, 10,000 rupees, a mobile phone, luggage and clothing, video camera, train ticket, ATM cards and driving licenses.
Police are assuming the thieves knew the hotel property well and had been casing the room to be sure they could break in after the pair had left.
