Overstaying American, Christopher Braman, Caught Stealing in Gucci Store, Phuket

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.

Fascinating. I wonder what he intended to do with those wallets. The article should say priced at xx,xxx baht since they really have zero value to 95 percent of all people.
