Pattaya police announced the arrest of a married couple who have been stealing gas canisters at the resort. 

 

Yon, 44, and Sakhon, 36, were arrested at their room in Jomtien along with a hacksaw used in their crimes. 

 

Last Sunday they stole two 15 kilogram gas canisters from  the Yong Ja restaurant next to the Pattaya police station. 

 

Then yesterday they repeated the trick stealing another one from a hotel on Sai 2 road. 

 

CCTV led to their capture. 

 

The miscreants said they sold the canisters for 800 baht a time to a second hand goods dealer. 

 

They said they had lost their jobs in construction due to the pandemic and needed cash for school fees.

So what happened to the second hand dealer?

Pretty sure that I spotted them in the deepest Naklua yesterday morning around 11 am.
The lady's unsafe position on the scooter with the canister on her upper legs attracted my attention. I also remember her outfit.

Everyone knows police don't work Sundays; or Saturdays; or after 4pm Fridays; or after dark; or public holidays; in fact ....

Well they were pretty active looking for drunk drivers at 2-3am on 2nd Rd in the pre-Covid days.
