A 45 year old Building Contractor who had 100,000 Baht in his pocket decided to steal a 25 Baht bottle of water from a Central Pattaya Convenience Store early on Monday Morning so he could go to Prison to avoid a legal dispute with a Karaoke Bar Owner.

Police were called to the store in front of Soi 8 on Pattaya Beach Road and arrested Khun Pasagorn aged 45, who was taken to Pattaya Police Station along with the water which he is alleged to have taken from the shop without making any attempt to pay for it.

During questioning the suspect revealed that his company were responsible for a fire at a Karaoke Bar on 27th March. His tools were destroyed in the fire and the Bar Owner wanted compensation for the blaze, which completely destroyed the interior of the Bar.

The pair could not come to an agreement over a re-payment scheme so Khun Pasagorn decided the only option left open to him was to commit a crime and go to Prison where he could “buy himself some time”.

His plan did not work after the store manager decided not to press charges after she was informed of the reason behind the theft. Khun Pasagorn was given some advice by Police of how to proceed with his case and his wife was called to the station to collect him.
