A Banglamung man was arrested for allegedly stealing a motorbike belonging to his transgender lover.
Peeyangkul Klongklaew, 19, was apprehended June 15 in Sriracha, along with the white and red Honda Click reported stolen by Nassanan Boonmanee, 24, who moved in with the suspect a week after they met on the Line messaging service.
Nassanan said he gave Peeyangkul keys to the motorbike for him to use while he was away. But on June 10 Peeyangkul drove off with clothes and other items and did not return to their Soi Khao Talo apartment.

Police said Peeyangkul confessed to taking the bike, but said he was only using it for personal use and had no intention of selling it. Police were dubious, however, and are checking his background for previous thefts.
