Staff at the Siam Platinum Hotel detained a 39 year old Thai man who had been stealing from their guests bedrooms.
He had just stolen a digital camera, two watches and 5,000 baht from the room of a Polish guest.
The thief Marut Yuwapan admitted to his crimes stating that he had recently been released from jail on drug charges and he desperately needed money as he was unemployed.
The thief is caught with the stolen goods and the wig he used to disguise himself.
He said he disguised himself in a hotel uniform and sneaked into rooms that were left unlocked and that he had done this three times already.
The police are now preparing a case against him to ensure that his next visit to jail will be for a longer period in a hope to rehabilitate him.
