Pattaya – A Nongprue man learned that if you’re going to steal a motorbike, it’s best not to have motorcycle taxi drivers witness it.

Weeradech Udomdej, 27, was arrested after being surrounded by drivers and others outside Chaimongkol Temple July 21 after they saw him jimmying the ignition of a Honda Super Cup with a screwdriver.

Victim Wichidchai Kumchu, 19, works at the temple as a parking attendant and parks his bike next to the South Road taxi stand every day. It was pretty easy for nearby drivers to realize it wasn’t Weeradech’s bike and they prevented him from fleeing the scene until police arrived.
