Foreigners allegedly steal mobile phones from guesthouse in Pattaya

Pattaya –

A group of foreigners seemingly working together allegedly stole two mobile phones from a guesthouse in Pattaya.

Mrs. Siriwan Sangaroon, 43, a staffer of a guesthouse in Soi Pattaya Sai Song 9 in Nongprue, Banglamung filed a report to the Pattaya City Police last night (November 5th).

She told police that there were two foreigners possibly from the Middle East asking her to have a look at a room on the 3rd floor of her guest house yesterday. However, they did not book the room. They said the room was too small before they left.

She later found out that two mobile phones charging at the guest house reception counter worth 9,500 baht and 15,000 baht had disappeared.

She then checked CCTV footage at the guesthouse. One of the same foreigners had come to the guesthouse on Friday (November 4th) asking about the room but did not book.

Yesterday, November 5th, the man returned but with a friend. The two men went to look at the room and a third foreign man wearing a facemask, seemingly working with the others, immediately entered the guesthouse from outside while the staff was showing the room and searched at the counter before stealing the mobile phones.

Police are continuing their investigation to find the suspects for further legal action.
