Monk Caught on Phuket Stealing, Sniffing Glue - Phuket Wan


PHUKET: A monk caught sniffing glue and pictured by a security camera stealing from a Phuket convenience store has been defrocked.

Residents near Wat Pra Aram in Thepkasattri Road, Rassada, alerted police to the monk's glue sniffing habits.



Officer kept an eye on the monk and when they were able to confirm the residents' allegations, moved in.

Intercepted at 9pm last night, Chaiyasit Janhtech, 33, said he had been a monk for six years and arrived on Phuket from Pattani on June 29 to visit friends.

He asked the abbot at the Phuket wat to stay for one night and when he failed to meet up with his Patong friends, stayed a little longer.

Security camera footage at a nearby convenience store showed the monk stealing 1000 baht and the wallet of a student whose parents run the store.

The former monk is likely to appear before Phuket Provincial Court on Monday.

Phuket NEWS: Glue-huffing monk on holiday in Phuket also a thief


PHUKET: A monk who came to Phuket to visit a friend was arrested in Rassada yesterday and charged with sniffing glue and theft.

Police were alerted by villagers at about 6pm yesterday that a monk was sniffing glue in a pavilion at Pa Aram Rattanaram Temple, near Mission Hospital (map here).

When police arrived at the temple, they found Chaiyasit Janpetch, 33, sitting in the pavilion with a glue can and glue in a plastic bag beside him.

In his bag they found a tablet computer, a pocketknife, a mini DVD player and some cash, with a total value estimated at 7,000 baht, said Lt Col Prawit Engchuan of the Phuket City Police.

After Mr Chaiyasit confessed that he had been sniffing glue, he was taken to Buddha Mongkol Nimit Temple in Phuket Town to be defrocked and formally removed from the monkhood.

He was then taken for questioning to Phuket City Police station.

“I was a monk for six years, first in Trang and then in Pattani. I came to Phuket on June 29 to visit a friend in Patong,” Mr Chaiyasit told the police.

After arriving in Phuket, he went to the temple nearest the Rassada bus station and continued staying there after he was unable to contact his friend. He had no plans to return to Pattani, he said.

Mr Chaiyasit confessed to police that the day after he arrived in Phuket he stole 1,000 baht and a child’s schoolbag from a grocery store on Thepkrasattri Road, Lt Col Prawit said.

Mr Chaiyasit has been charged with sniffing glue and theft.
