Thai Rath reported on a snatch theft from a gold shop in Sriracha, Chonburi on Thailand's eastern seaboard.

 

It happened at the end of a soi in the Nong Kham police jurisdiction at the Rung Charoen Yaowarat shop.

 

Startled staff said that a woman had come in and after browsing had run off with a two baht weight item of gold (this is worth about 60,000 baht notes ASEAN NOW).

Police quickly on the scene studied CCTV and discovered the name of the thief, a woman called Mayrin Namphitak, 25, from Ubon who was rounded up within 30 minutes nearby and taken on a renenactment.

 

The suspect admitted to being addicted to gambling and just the other day she lost 300,000 baht in a single day.

She had no way out and turned to theft.

 

She was charged with snatch theft using a conveyance that in this case was her motorcycle that she used to go home in after stealing the gold.

The sad part is that what ever proceeds of the loot she'd get she would gamble with it anyway, so by robbing she didn't solve her problems just made them worse...

So she robbed a place where everyone knows her?

I know an older Thai lady that now lives with her brother on an Army base, has huge gambling debts and probably can't leave that base for the rest of her life.
