Banglamung police were told about a situation that sounded like a script for a Thai movie.
On June the 15th a 43 year old Lady-boy named Virot reported to them that a 30 year old monk named Prajak Kenkham had stolen his car back on February the 14th.
Virot said he had lived and worked with the monk in Soi Nern Plub Wan and regarded him as a soul mate.
Once disrobed the ex monk is escorted to the police station.
Virot stated that he had decided to buy a brand new Honda which the monk would use as a sort of taxi.
Virot said on February 14 Prajak was hired to pick up a foreigner in a village and take him to to Laem Chabang golf course, however Prajak never returned home and completely disappeared.
Virot set up a sting operation with the help of police and staff from the Honda Company by keeping an eye on him when he returned to pick up the car’s registration plate numbers to replace the red plates.
When he finally showed up at the Honda Center the company staff alerted the police who arrested him but prior to taking him to the police station for charges of theft Prajak was first taken to the temple where he was disrobed as his actions were obviously not in accordance with Buddhist traditions and that he merely used his ordination as a cover for this and maybe other crimes that he had committed.
