A man has been arrested after he stole gold items worth 270,000 baht from a friend’s home in Wichit.

The Wichit Police told the Phuket Express that last month Mr. Likit Wowthong filed a report to police that a suspect stole a gold necklace, two gold rings, and a gold bracelet in total worth 270,000 baht from his home at Saphan Hin Village in the Wichit sub-district, Mueang Phuket district.

Police have continued their investigation in which they finally arrested Mr. Satit, 41, yesterday (October 6th) at a shooting rage in the Rawai sub-district. He is facing charges of theft.
