note: the one question i always had, if it's only a pick-pocketing attempt, i.e. they are not caught with the

goods on them, it's just your word against theirs? and then they are right back on street? apparently?

Finnish tourist collars pick-pocket

reporter: Boonlua Chatree

A Finnish citizen out walking late to enjoy the Pattaya nightlife found his pocket being picked by a transvestite but detained the alleged thief himself until police came.

On December 19 at 1.20 a.m., Pol. Maj-Col. Wittaya Yoenyong, Crime Suppression at the Pattaya Police Station, received a report from Juha Haanpaa, 37, that he was actually at that moment holding on to a “lady-boy” who tried to steal his wallet with 3,200 baht in it in Soi 2 and Pattaya 2nd Road and would police come quickly to make the arrest.

Police said they arrived at a busy scene in the middle of the street where the foreigner was detaining a transvestite wearing women’s clothing and surrounded by a crowd of people.

The alleged thief was identified as Chaiyot Mouenkamlue, 28, of Phitsanulok. After searching him, the officers said they found a black wallet that belonged to the victim in the transvestite’s handbag.

According to police, Chaiyot said that he provided sexual service to tourists. Due to the drop in tourism in Pattaya he didn’t have money to pay for his rent and food and therefore had to resort to pick-pocketing.
