Canadian loses 500,000 Baht’s worth of valuables following room theft.

 

Pattaya, October 1 [PATTAYA ONE NEWS] : Just after 8.30 on Wednesday Night, Police Lieutenant Colonel Reungwit from Pattaya Police Station was called to the Wanna Living Apartments in Soi Sukumvit 46/1 in South Pattaya. Police were contacted by Mr. David Popadeynetz aged 57 from Canada who had returned to his room to find it had been broken into and items had been stolen. He revealed that he had been away from the room since Midday and returned to find the room safe had disappeared. Luckily Security Cameras were able to record a possible suspect in the case and it is believed that a man of middle-eastern origin, who checked-in earlier in the day, is responsible for the theft. He is seen to enter Mr. Popadeynetz’s room and leave moments later with a large object in his bag which is thought to be the room safe. He did not give registration details at the time of check-in and gave the excuse that his friends had his papers and would arrive soon. Police believe the suspect is part of an organized and professional middle-eastern gang operating here in Pattaya and the search for him and others in the gang are ongoing at this time while Mr. Popadeynetz comes to terms with the loss of the safe which contained 6,000 Euro’s, 2 credit cards, 1 bank book, a flight ticket, passport, mobile phone, digital camera, some Thai currency and a laptop which was also stolen from the room.

Poor bloke, makes you wonder how safe your things are if the whole safe can be stolen!!

 

I always use the safety deposit boxes as you need two keys to open them i feel they are a little bit safer but i don't like staff seeing what i put in their so i hide it in a plastic sleeve.

 

Hope they lock the bastard up!!

I always wonder why people seem to have such large amounts of cash in house in Pattaya. If you live there, or stay long term, just get a local bank acc, and use the ATM whenever you're short of cash.

Sure the poor fellow had a safe and by God he could not be leaving his computer in the bank. I'd be saying that its a terrible thing that has happened and I would hope that the police soon catch the burglar and get back the stuff.

I'd rather look at tits, cunts and arseholes than listen to them!

I'm not saying it's the poor dudes fault, but even if your safe is bolted into the wall, what's the point for keeping such amounts of cash in house? For sure, they could steal your laptop, pc, tv and stuff, but I wouldn't let these amounts of cash in house, not even in the safe.

Feel for the fella!

 

But how good is that safe?

 

You can just pick it up and walkaway? :Question:

And, when they catch the bar steward, it might not be a bad idea to send him home to a bit a middle eastern justice. I understand a suspended sentence there isn't quite as cushy as one in the UK

When a man is tired of Pattaya, he is tired of life.

I wouldnt be that confident about banks in Thailand, if i were you. This isnt just an isolated case, either:

What a sad story, but it goes to show that things like this happens everyday all over the world!

 

I hope he's able to get most or some of his valuables back.

Hmmm, than what are the options? I guess it isn't easy to transfer money to a foreign bank account from Thailand? Perhaps they rent safes at the bank?

most safes in hotels if you look can be open with a key,there is a plastic panel on the front you can flip off and open with a special key,these type of people have all these things mastered,what about tthe key card system in hotels ,i bet someone has a way to get into rooms etc.

"Middle Eastern".. bit vague, but keep us posted about this. Robbin bastards should have their hands cut off. The guy, same as most of us, would assume that the safe is the correct option, but to pick it up and carry it out!!!!!! WTF?????

Terrible news for poor canadian.. Safe is not safe anymore.. Best option is ATM or Bank Account, Not too much, just transferring certain amount you need for holidays. I hope those bastards will be caught and lock em up at bangkok Hilton.

Are there more cases known where thieves cracked or even stole the safe in the hotel room. And how safe are these safes?

 

Room safes just keep an otherwise honest housekeeper / bargirl from temptation .. not and actual break in where someone possibly has tools

and the like.

 

but what about the hotel letting this dude in with no papers.. they need to step up the policy of letting unknowns into there building.

No papers .. no room or access to property.

 

when you stay there you expect them to help protect you and your belongings
