13 year old steals 8 motorbikes

A young teen who allegedly stole several motorcycles in a month was caught within hours of his last auto heist in the Thonburi area of Bangkok.

Samrae police learned about the thefts when the owner of the last cycle, who had left his bike parked in front of a local restaurant in the Mahai Sawan neighborhood on Monday night, reported the bike stolen while he had dinner nearby with friends, reported Thai PBS.

Officers checked CCTV camera clips and saw two young boys tampering with the bike before speeding away with it. They managed to pinpoint the believed leader to his grandmother’s home in Soi Wat Dao Khanong and arrested him.

He reportedly does not go to school and has lived with his gran since his parents divorced several years ago. Police also said that the boy spends most of his time in internet cafes playing video games.

The boy, whose identity has not been revealed due to his age, allegedly confessed to stealing several bikes, which he would simply ride until they ran out of gas or he saw the police, and then dump them.

Older bikes were most often his target since they are easier to steal with a skeleton key.

While he was at it, the boy also said that he had performed five home break-ins in the area, stealing THB20,000 and a smartphone.

Police are searching for the second boy in the footage and have, so far, only charged the first boy with theft. Since he is under the age of 15, he would not receive a criminal punishment and the court may decide to discipline him by discussing the action with his guardian or sending him to a juvenile detention center.

    THE LAW IS AN ASS He stole all those bikes and confessed to home break ins 20.000 baht and smart phone He should get the maximum sentence life without parole and the same for his friend.

      Well you cretin English are in Thailand murdering and raping taking over the once peaceful streets of Thailand and getting away with it Scott free and you have the audacity to call on this little motorbike hoodlum to get the maximum sentence .

      • Tony Akhurst

        Why not as when he is punished he will only start stealing and housebreaking and maybe he will break into your shithole and steal your little push bike.

      You are such a backward cretin mullah Tony. You should move to a Taliban controlled country as you seem to share their views (only problem for you alcoholic cretin is they don’t treat old drunks kindly)
      The boy is only 13, he still has a chance to become a good person. He needs to be sent to school and to be offered a future, then he might stop stealing

        I have to agree with you guest it is obvious that his gran cannot control him so he needs to be taught discipline ,no use sending him to a detention centre he will only further his trade skills, perhaps somewhere like a boot camp or military academy where he will have to do as he is told or his drill sergent will make his life a f******** nightmare .

        • brian

          what a good idea they could teach him about guns and tourture.

          • Chris Snell

            We have a system here that does just that ,its called veterans for youth and what it does is instill teamwork,respect and discipline into wayward teenagers nothing to do with guns or torture ,so i suggest you crawl back under the covers and bite your pillow a bit harder lefty

          • brian

            Here ? this is Thailand. vetrans in thailand what a joke,when have they had a war you go bite your boyfriends ass,i’d rather be a lefty than a red neck [email protected]

            The training is based on military training from a discipline perspective, there is no military training in the use of firearms etc!

        Does a leopard change its spots you Retarded old pedo

        • Guest

          Yes sore cretin, I think that all hope is not lost and that given proper guidance this young lad’s life can take a good turn.
          And BTW I’m only 40, that means at least 25 younger than you old bag.
          I dunno if a leopard can change his spots but don’t forget to change your diaper before you go to your boystown’s favorite beer-bar, you derelict pedo poofter

          • USPatriot

            Maybe you can mentor him.. you will see the truth.

            Doesnt want to go to school or work, he will be in the news again.

          • Guest

            I think that he deserves to be punished but, unlike the old idiot who calls for life without parole (nothing less) I don’t think that they should throw the book at him.
            He is only 13 and I want to believe that there is still a chance that he could better himself if given proper guidance.

          • Charles Baht Esquire.

            These Poms don’t know any better soon he’ll be calling for there beloved medi evil dungeon torture methods like the stretch rack and the rat cage they are as sick and thick as dog sh*t these cretin Poms

        • JACK

          At 13 they can, you old dotard!

    • JACK

      You are talking about a 13 year old ass-hurts!

  • ken

    Send him to Singapore so he can face the cane. A good thrashing would do this criminal good.

  • ken

    Obviously this is not the first time he has engaged in this type of criminal activity and it will not be the last. This hardened criminal is off to a good start as a career criminal as he emulates the criminal actions of his Thai elders. A juvenile detention center is a day at the beach for this baboon but do allow him to continue to be steal as it may result in his permanent demise before he reaches the age of 20 which would benefit us all.

    • Charles Baht Esquire.

      You are obviously bitter and jealous he is a kid a minor still has a life time and you are middle aged with a alcohol addiction you probably never amounted to much in life and have been leeching of welfare most of your life all be it there’s not much life left in you.

  • Ricksanchez

    The crimes seem relatively harmless and seem to stem from boredom. There is no malice or viciousness to the crimes just a kid passing the time being a nuisance. The crimes of the Brit teenager 99% involve stabbing and assault.

    • Dr. Winston O’Boogie

      Got to disagree with you here Rick. He stole these motorcycles from people. This isn’t harmless. People may have needed those bikes for work etc. They may have not had insurance through lack of funds. What he did is wrong. Including your made up statistic.

      • Ricksanchez

        I said the crime was relatively harmless, the purpose of stealing the motorcycles was not to make people miss work or to hurt them financially. He’s 13 years old.

        • Dr. Winston O’Boogie

          Very true. But the issue then becomes: what is relative? It could be argued that it doesn’t matter what his purpose is, he still affects peoples’ lives. It shows complete lack of empathy for anyone else. But then again, I suppose what teenager ever shows empathy?

  • brian

    there seems to be no law in thailand to make kids go to school,in the real world there are huge fines for not getting kids to attend school.

  • JACK

    The kid has had a rough start in life, growing up without a father and role model, no stable family unit,and living in poverty with his no doubt caring and loving grandmother, he should not be put in juvenile detention where he will just learn more tricks from the older boys and institutionalise him, he needs education and guidance, it is not to late to turn him around and give him a chance in life, but alas the chances of that are remote! life aint fair!

  • Glockandspiel

    This boy needs to be punished and pay for his actions. I don’t buy into the fact he is only 13 years old because by that age you clearly know right from wrong and he knew what he was doing was illegal but continued to flout the law. I would also go after his absent parents and punish them for reneging on their responsibilities. An appropriate punishment would be a community order maybe servicing motorbikes at a garage in lieu of a detention centre and a final warning.
    For the parents, I would impose on them a fine for unpaid child support and abandonment and parenting/ birth control classes which they can attend whilst in the monkey house.

    Thailand’s No 1 was only yesterday as a prelude to children’s day on TV proclaiming what an asset today’s youth is, and how rosy the future of wasteland looks, as they are indeed the future!!
