LB pickpocket gang arrested after bus robbery.

Thailand is Cambodia's neighbor to the West, and this forum is dedicated to Thai news, stories, reviews, blogs, videos, Thai people and anything else related to the country. A lot of expats have both lived and worked in Cambodia and Thailand, and this area is a place to discuss all aspects of life in Thailand and what's going on there. Most topics are about Bangkok and Pattaya because of their larger populations of expatriates and tourists in those cities, but this is for all things Thai.

At 5pm, on the afternoon of September 27, Pattaya police arrested Ms Usa Aiemsa-ard, (35) and Ms Malinee Sae-Tang (27) and charged them with theft. A motorbike involved with the crime has been impounded.

Earlier in the day sixty-nine year old Australian tourist reported that she had been robbed on a baht bus of 5,500 baht and a bank card. At the end of her journey she noticed her purse had been taken from her bag.

Officers identified the suspects from CCTV images and traced them to Thepprasit Soi 7 where they were arrested. They have both admitted the crime.

A third member of the gang, a ladyboy called Mr Pom, escaped and is now being hunted...

This is a really common MO. They jump on a bus, suss out a likely victim and sit either side of you. One distracts you, the other lifts your valuables. Some people believe the bus drivers are in on the thefts because the crims seem to jump on and off buses without paying.

More sideshow events brought to you by the Circus formerly known as Thailand.

If you don't want to be pickpocketed by ladyboys, don't go there.

I'm a bit hung up on the nom de guerre of "Mr Pom" for a ladyboy.

If someone's going to go that way, wouldn't something more feminine be better suited?

just strikes me as a funny.

cheers
