According to the shop owner, Mr Chalidar, 48, the suspect had initially pawned two gold bracelets, which were later found to be fake, for B26,000 on October 14.

On his return visit on Friday, the owner immediately recognised the man and called the police. 

Mr Pahamni was taken to Pattaya Police Station where he revealed how he worked at a Bangladeshi restaurant in Bangkok for B13,000 per month. A salary he claimed was not enough to live-on and reason enough for him to pawn the gold to raise money to cover his living expenses.

Mr. Pahamni was charged with fraud and awaits a court appearance.
