Three Nigerian men, who posed as Tourists have been arrested for burgling hotel rooms across Pattaya, making away with valuables worth about $13, 000
Between August 2015 and March 2016, managers of ten hotels across the City of Pattaya reported several instances of these crimes but arrests could not be made until now.
The City Police, cooperating with the Tourist Police, together monitoring CCTV around the City, gathered enough evidence to make the arrest of the Nigerian criminals who were residing at a hotel behind Tuk Com in South Pattaya.
It was revealed that the Nigerian men would rent a hotel room and from there climb from their balcony to other guests' rooms to perpetrate their crimes. They always focused on cash.
Investigators concluded that this gang burglarized eight hotels within the seven months period. The estimated total loss from hotel thefts were about 454,800 baht, which is roughly $13, 000.
Their prosecution will be in accordance with the Thai Law on Robbery, Illegal Immigration and Overstaying.
