    Aussie Woman Arrested For Shoplifting in Chiang Mai-s__5865583-jpg

    Police in the northern province of Chiang Mai yesterday announced the arrest of a 38 year old Australian woman who allegedly stole 6 inexpensive items from a store in tambon Chang Moi, in Mueang Chiang Mai district. “Emily C.” was traced after she got into a white Toyota Prius and returned to the hotel where she had been staying for a number of days.


    Her “haul” comprised 5 pairs of sunglasses valued at 100 baht each and a purse priced at 150 baht. The theft had been reported to police by the shop owner, 32 year old Pim, on June 10. By examining CCTV footage from the shop, police were able to identify the woman and her car and track her down. The woman has been charged with theft and using a conveyance in pursuit of the crime.

    What a useless watchdog,would of been nice to see it latch on the thieving scumbag.
    Hope they give her a decent punishment unlike OZ where she would claim depression because her pussy died.

    Perhaps she's a kleptomaniac.

    I think it's Bali where they usually sort it out with the miscreant paying the shop ten times the value of the goods.

    I go with Nev on this one, she looks well fed and not short of a bob or two, so it's likely to be a mental issue.

    Paying 10x the cost + something to the cops won't stop her from thieving.

    I believe it doesn't go to the police, it goes to the shop, anything else the police require to avoid doing paperwork is extra.

    So how would she feel having to pay Bt6,500 for some chinky crap worth - sorry priced at - Bt650 for a start?

    She'll feel quite pleased if she's able to avoid a few months residence in the Chiang Mai Woman's Correctional Institution.

    I don't think that will be the outcome.

    At least the Governor isn't stepping in to pay her fine.

    http://www.thaiexaminer.com/thai-news-foreigners/2020/06/19/aussie-woman-emily-catherine-arrested-police-chiang-mai-sunglasses-handbag-theft/

    A 38-year-old Australian woman named only as Ms Emily Catherine was arrested on Wednesday at a hotel in Chiang Mai. She admits she was the woman in CCTV footage seen acting in a shamefully dishonest manner while committing theft.

    A US woman from Washington State convicted of a similar offence in 2018 in the northern town of Pai spent 6 months in Mae Hong Son provincial prison.


    Theft of private property is a crime taken very seriously in Thailand and on conviction, Ms Emily can expect to be spending time in a Thai prison.

    The prison term for theft is up to 3 years but in this case, there are both extenuating and aggravating circumstances. The former being the relatively minor value of the goods taken from the store.




    Committing a crime in a foreign country is playing with fire...

    Will Thailand make allowances for rich, fat tourists, with mental health problems, in their new Welcome to Thailand adds?

    Depends if their money extraction program is fully means tested.
