A hesitant thief took three, video-monitored visits to a Naklua gold shop before stealing a gold ring Wednesday.
Wantanee Supasaharangsi, owner of the gold shop located 50 meters from a Naklua Market police box, said a Thai man in his mid-30s came into her shop to look at a 10,000 baht necklace and left. He then returned and inquired about a ring, then left again, claiming he had no money.
Police officers interview gold shop owner Wantanee Supasaharangsi following the theft at her premises on Wednesday.
On his third visit, he again returned to try on the ring. When the 75-year-old Wantanee got distracted, he ran out with the gold.
The thief’s face was captured three times by security cameras, so police had no trouble putting out a clear description of the thief and said they are confident he will be caught.
