Banglamung police pursued 3 criminals fleeing on two motorbikes after they had snatched two gold necklaces from Christian Deletaille a Danish national at a convenience store in Soi Nong Ket Noi, Nong Pla Lai sub-district, the officers managed to catch the three gangsters in a nearby field.
Athit and Apiwat confessed to their crime that they had snatched the necklaces off the foreigner but stated that they threw them away whilst being chased by the police.
The culprits are pointed out in typical Pattaya fashion.
They said the other man named Ekasit did not have anything to do with the crime.
Police believe the gang may have passed the necklaces onto another gang member who was probably hiding in the area and that these young men had committed these kinds of crimes many times and this will surely continue as people don’t seem to learn that wearing gold necklaces in Pattaya is unfortunately simply asking for trouble.
