Exclusive: Thief robs The Red Bull Bar and Guesthouse on Buddha Day, owner seeks assistance

The Pattaya News

Recommended Posts


On Tuesday, May 29th 2018, which is a religious holy day a brazen thief robbed the Red Bull Bar and Guesthouse at roughly 12:30PM.

The owner, Erik, states that the night before the man arrived and asked to rent a room but wanted to go out for one more drink before the bars closed at midnight. The cashier on duty agreed and gave him the key to the room but said would give the key to electric when he came back and take the payment. then. The man, who is a foreigner but has not been identified yet, said he would be right back but did not return. It is unclear if he provided identity to the guest house as he had not fully checked in yet.

The man never returned that night.

The next day, CCTV footage showed the man return to the bar when it was clearly closed at roughly 12:30PM. As can be seen on the photos below he did not go to the room he had been given but rather went behind the counter, tried his key on the till, opened several unlocked drawers, wandered through the supply closets and stole, according to Erik, many bottles of liquor to a total of about 10,000 baht, carrying out of the bar. The CCTV cameras did not show where he carried the boxes of liquor that he stole to.

Police were called right away when the theft was discovered but the man had already escaped. They will be checking CCtv cameras on the street in the area to see if they can identify the vehicle the man left on.  If anyone recognizes this man, please contact us on Facebook at The Pattaya News or through email by Pattayanewseditor@gmail.com. The owner believes the man is a local and not a tourist and came in the night before to scope out the bar.

Thank you.

The thief probably owns a nearby bar and was just looking for some cheap stock.

Erik and the clerk are victims of a criminal who preys on innocent targets. Better surveillance equipment would not have prevented the theft. The thief did nothing to disguise himself and the CCTV shown is of a good enough quality to assist in the investigation.

I understand that the clerk could have done a better job of registering the culprit when he booked in. The thief obviously planned this crime and took advantage of a naive clerk who was undoubtedly trying to be helpful.

Even smart people become victims. Hopefully both the owner and the clerk are alright after becoming victims of a minor crime.

Scumbag. Poor clerk trying to be helpful.

For news like this might be an idea for the mods to somehow draw these posts to everyone's attention. Be a good chance a BM has met him or seen him.

    • For those that don't know, I did Friday meetings before many years ago,  I feel like we are missing a regular meeting for members,  I am aware guys meet at PA affiliated bars. But I want to start meeting people again, I'm inviting the guys following my YouTube also.

      The meetings is a chance to get to meet each other,  I plan to be at every meeting, I also have Dean from Dive bar that has offered to help out with a crawl after.
      The meetings will be  Monday  6 pm - 8 pm each week.  (The improvised bar crawl will commence at 8 p.m.  Dean will make his own plans for that.)

      Due to low numbers of people in town, I will start the meetings in our bars to help our girls and managers, please check back often incase things are changed.  I will be sharing the love around town later, but Soi 6 is first on my list (including bars that are friendly competition)   
      If bar owners want us to have a meeting at their bar,  they need to have a minimum of 10 girls.  I'm not dragging people to empty bars for favours.
      Please help us invite other members, it takes a while to get momentum.
      Monday 6 pm - 8pm  (then bar crawl after)
      21st March - Playpen Soi 6
      28th March - Night wish bar Soi 6
      4th April - Toy Box bar Soi 6
      11th April - Repent Soi 6
      18th April - where angels play Soi 6
