Pattaya Hooker Arrested After Stealing 11,000 Baht From Customer

A Pattaya hooker was arrested after stealing 11,000 baht from an Indian customer after he fell asleep drunk in his hotel room.

Ploy Duangwai, 29, was picked up by the holidaymaker on the Beach Road in Pattaya and agreed a price with him to return to his hotel.

But when he fell asleep in the room while drunk and after their exertions, she rifled through his pockets and left the room with the cash.

The man complained to police after the theft on September 2 and officers began their hunt. They checked CCTV and identified Ploy, but it took them two weeks to track her down.

Police chief Apichair Krobtech said the young woman often changed accommodation which made the task of finding her more difficult.

He added: ”We obtained an arrest warrant and began looking for her. When we found the woman she admitted stealing the money.

”She befriended the man, they talked in the room and drank alcohol until he fell asleep. The accused took a chance to steal 11,000 baht in cash in the pockets of the injured and then fled.”

Ploy admitted the theft and said this was the first time she had committed a crime. She claimed to need the money to buy school books.
