They have admitted charges of theft at night using a conveyance or fencing stolen goods.


The case began on January 11th when the Thonglor cops were told of the theft of a Honda Wave from a PTT gas station in Rama 4 in their jurisdiction.


CCTV was utilized that traced the thieves to a rented room in the Huay Khwang area of the Thai capital.
