Thai police raid shop-houses suspected of electricity theft for Bitcoin mining


Recommended Posts



Police and utility officials in Nang Rong district of the north-eastern province of Buri Ram searched two shop houses yesterday (Sunday), the occupants of which are suspected of stealing electricity over the past nine months.


They did not find anybody in the two shop-houses, but found several computer notebooks, 60 sets of computer accessories, Wi-Fi routers, close-circuit TV cameras and electrical distribution boards in one room and four electric fans in another room.


Utility officials checked the electrical wiring and found one of the buildings directly connected to the Provincial Electricity Authority electrical cabling, which is proof of electricity theft. They estimated losses from power theft at about a million baht.

A million Baht in 9 months?

That's a lot of units.

I had a  dozen ASIC miners running in 2017 and my electric bill was around 130,000 THB a month.
