    A Brit and his wife steal a mattress and cash from Brit neighbour

    Brit, wife videoed nicking mattress, cash from neighbour

    3 October 2018

    PATTAYA: An Englishman and his Thai wife were left speechless when police showed them video footage of the husband carrying a stolen mattress from the room next door, where foreign currency worth about 126,000 baht was also reported missing.

    The arrests followed a complaint filed by a fellow Briton, identified only as Stephen, 66, on Sept 29. He told police he had returned from a holiday in Cambodia and discovered that his room door had been forced open.

    About 3,000 (about 126,000 baht) he had left inside the room was missing - along with his 6-foot-wide mattress. Police examined the scene and viewed recordings made by a security camera in the corridor, which shed light on the burglary.

    There were two robbers, who divided the task - with the man forcing open the door and the woman acting as lookout, police said. The man was seen moving a large mattress out of the victim's room.

    The arrested couple live in the room next door.


    The couple told police they were in dire need of money, and they took the mattress to use on their own bed. They said they had not yet spent the stolen money.

    Ha Ha Ha, its what happens when the pound weakens to the point where they either have to go home or pick over each others bones. I cannot understand for the life of me why you'd keep that much money in an unsecured place - they both deserve what they got coming for joint stupidity. Hopefully it'll mean they both leave.

    Pretty fukin funny. If you turn the clock back to the golden days of Brit comedies, Only Fools & Horses, One Foot In The Grave et al the writers of the those shows could have taken a trip here and found endless source material, could have run to 3-4 seasons easy and thats just a 4 week trip to Patters

    The mattress must have some great memories for her

    Maybe the dumb Brit thought she said it was memory foam

    As she was giving the mattress a good clean, it came alive and said ''You taking the piss?''

    Classy looking place to retire to.

    What idiot leaves 3 grand in a concrete box with a cardboard door.

    The wives of the two idiots aren't friends by any chance?

    Inspector Clueless looks deep in thought, can anyone add a suitable caption?

    ^ "The mattress can't be in there. There's not enough room for it. Do they think I'm daft?"

    Looks like he's about a foot taller than the height of the doorknob.

    Luigiesque.

    Grace, everyone decries the Brits but we do keep peoples spirits up. Just when you think your life is looking a little dull, mundane or on a downward trajectory.... up pops a Brit to remind you how lucky you are not to be from these sainted Isles gene pool. We brought you Darwin and ever since have been unhappy other countries getting all the awards...not anymore we're on fast track for a clean sweep
