Three Indian tourists arrested for stealing shorts and a bracelet in Krabi


Krabi –

Three female Indian tourists were arrested at an airport after stealing shorts and a bracelet from shops in Ao Nang.

The Ao Nang Police Deputy Chief Lieutenant Colonel Somphon Thiparpakun told the Phuket Express that Staffers at a clothing shop in Ao Nang, Mueang Krabi district filed a report to the Ao Nang Police with CCTV footage last week.

CCTV footage shows three female foreign tourists came into the shop before taking away a pair of jean shorts. It was later reported that the same group of tourists stole a bracelet from an accessory shop nearby too.

Ao Nang Police continued their investigation and finally arrested three female Indian tourists aged 23, and two of them 25, at the Suvarnabhumi International Airport this week while they were about to go back to India.

The three women, who were not identified by name by Ao Nang Police, admitted they were the women seen on CCTV but claimed they didn’t mean to steal the items but thought they were complimentary souvenirs being given by the shops and being offered for free. Ao Nang Police were dubious about this claim and all three women were arrested and detained with charges of theft by night.
