    Scarborough shop owner tells of holiday robbery ordeal in Thailand

    A SCARBOROUGH man was given a knockout pill and robbed while in a hotel in Pattaya, Thailand.

    Bill Dodd, who owns the Roast Inn sandwich shop in Huntriss Row, was "out cold" for 26 hours after the incident, when thieves robbed him of just 90 and his mobile phone.

    Speaking from Thailand, Mr Dodd told the Evening News: "These things happen all the time over here.

    "I was having a few drinks in the hotel and I suddenly started feeling ill. I was taken to my room and that's all I remember. I woke up in hospital. I certainly wasn't feeling too well when I woke up.

    "When I got back to my hotel room from the hospital I discovered that around 5,000 Baht about 90 and my mobile phone had been taken.

    "My passport and other valuables were in the hotel safe. You've got to be careful over here,this sort of thing isn't unusual. I'm fine now and will be staying here until November."

    Mr Dodd said he believes he was the victim of one of the "date rape" drugs, which he says are frequently used in robberies in Thailand.

    Common "date rape" drugs include GHB gamma hydroxybutyric acid; Rohypnol lunitrazepam; and Ketamine ketamine hydrochloride. Their effect is to render victims physically helpless and unable to remember what happened. The drugs often have no colour, smell or taste and are easily added to flavoured drinks without the victim's knowledge.

    Mr Dodd was in Thailand on holiday and visiting family.

    His wife, Kirati, who is herself Thai, is still in Scarborough. She said: "It is a poor country and this happens all the time. Bill is very lucky to be alright."

    Just go to the local pharmacy, tell them you want something to render someone unconscious for 26 hours, they'll simply ask if you want the big box or little box.

    So, knowing this, you would think he might be a tad more careful.

    What, staying in the same hotel where he was drugged? I can't wait for the story about the Brit who had ThB 300,000 and his passport stolen from a Pattaya hotel room, and the victim informing us that "this sort of thing isn't unusual"

    So which one gave him the Mickey-Finn?

    He is also lucky she is in Scarborough. Thai women aren't that stupid when it comes to stuff like this.
    I see fish. They are everywhere. They don't know they are fish.
