PATTAYA: -- A Finnish couple out for a stroll on their first day in Pattaya were robbed yesterday in the latest motorcycle snatch theft to hit the resort.

 

The incident happened in Wat Bun Kanchana Road and left the woman with lacerations of the neck, reported Sanook.

 

The thief on a motorcycle stole two necklaces from the woman's neck worth a total of 50,000 baht.

 

Witnesses said the motorcyclist passed the couple who were walking back to their hotel then turned and carried out the grab of the necklaces.

Don't go to Pattaya...just too much of a risk. 

Are you suggesting sitting at home. No man, go but dress up in such way that no attention is attracted.

Why don't people learn stealing is wrong. Being able to buy such items comes with hard work. The reason people still steal is the punishment is way too soft in many cultures. I apprehended a thief while in Singapore by the time it came for me to make a second interview with police to be given a citizen commendation. The guy was serving 3 years with no parole. Tried to deny it was him on cctv & refused to regret his crime no mercy from the judge he also faced deportation after sentence served (result) plus the roughing up he received trying to evade my capture.

a nail on the head. of course thanks to Singapore for its policies. crime still does exit but it is not rampant.

As it seems to be more profitable for the BiB's to clear beaches from deck chairs, this will continue.

it is a vicious circle - you have to open up many layers to tackle it. try banging the offenders HARD and it will work to a great extent.

Not just Pattaya, don't wear jewelry on the street anywhere, anytime.

I feel it is OK to wear jewellery but it should be suitable covered so that it does not attract attention easily.

Punishment leniency is part of it. But, the core issue is how "something for nothing" entitlement cultures have proliferated disrespect for authority and work ethic.

That type of robbery seems to be going up lately, easy money for the robbers since the police have yet to catch any of them, well not what I can read on-line anyway.

 

Yes min 1 full year in the slammer for 1st offense, double up on the next one, 3rd= 5years.

 

I noticed when 2 police men riding on a bike patrol, the passenger police man are on-line on his phone; protect and serve my ass.

Everyone talking about harsher penalties, that works tosome extent.

 

The underlying  problem is poverty which leads to addiction and broken homes which produces kids that fail school and then go on to become addicts and or criminals.

Why don't people ever learn that when visiting a third world country or any tourist area, wearing jewelry is asking for trouble. The lack of common sense is befuddling.  

It is amazing how extremely smart you are, you must have known it all when you arrived here first.
