The inside of a jail cell convinced a Russian shoplifter that lying about his innocence probably wasn’t the smartest move.
Pavel Vladimirovich, 30, confessed to stealing two bottles of Dior perfume from Central Festival Pattaya Beach Dec. 17. Caught by mall security guards, Vladimirovich initially denied taking the cologne, even though the guards told him he wouldn’t be charged with any crime if he simply paid the 6,300 baht for the goods.
The Russian decided to pay for the perfume after his initial refusal to do so got him thrown into a jail cell at Pattaya Police Station. Once the mall was paid, Vladimirovich was released without charge.
