On May the 25th police were called to Soi 16 Pattaya-Naklua road after a Russian tourist had had her bag snatched.
She told police that she was exiting her hotel to catch a baht bus into town when two Thai men on different motorbikes sandwiched her and grabbed her shoulder bag.
She claimed that the bag contained, 2,000 US dollars.
Police radioed their colleagues with a description of the men and luckily one was captured.
The Russian Tourists wait to identify the thief.
The nineteen year old man who chose a life of crime rather than doing a hard day’s work stated that he worked with another man call Nut.
Police went to the Nuts house on Soi Pottisarn however he was nowhere to be seen.
He was probably down at a money exchanger cashing in his day’s takings and turning dollars into baht.
