Sen Sgt Maj Thanakorn Chupong of the Phuket City Police was called to the worksite, a commercial townhouse under renovation off the bypass road, at 4pm yesterday (Oct 8) by the 191 police hotline call centre, which reported they had received a call reporting a thief was still at the scene.

Sen Sgt Maj Thanakorn reported that when he arrived at the townhouse, electrical technician Paisan Suwankhiri, 27, apparently in a state of apprehension, told him that a thief was still on the fourth floor.

Sen Sgt Maj Thanakorn rushed to the fourth floor, but the thief had already fled.

However, left behind was a red backpack containing pliers, cable cutters and a pair of women’s underwear. A ladder at the scene was also noted as evidence.

Mr Paisarn explained that he and his colleagues found water on the floor along with cut cables on the second storey of the building, prompting them to check the building for anything stolen.

Wow,what a great story ! Phuket must be a real boring place if there is nothing better to report about.The only interesting aspect about this story would be if they did send the underwear to Insp.K. for a thorough investigation already.
