Briton held over alleged m-cycle and snatch theft


BANGKOK: Muang Pattaya police in Chonburi province arrested a British national, Ben Frost (pic), 39, for allegedly stealing a motorcycle and snatching a bag in Pattaya during the past week.

Chanida Muangsak, a photographer in Chonburi, said she had parked her white Honda motorcycle near a sidewalk to run some errands, leaving the key in the ignition.

When she returned 30 minutes later, her bike was gone. Nearby pedestrians said that a Caucasian resembling a tourist had ridden away as if he were the owner.

Later on the night of Jan 1, Nattawut Damdong, owner of a bar on Pattaya Sai 2 Road, said that Frost came to his bar and ordered a beer so he went in to get one.

When he returned, Frost was gone allegedly with his bag that contained a mobile phone, 900 baht (RM122) in cash and some documents. Both victims filed a case at Pattaya Police Station, describing the culprit as the same person, which led to the arrest of Frost.

Frost initially rejected the allegations, but reportedly confessed later when confronted by witnesses and evidence. — The Nation/ANN
