Muang Chon Buri police were informed of theft at 11.45pm and rushed to meet the Korean, Sangyong Jong (not official spelling), 25, at a gas station on the Chon Buri bypass road in Tambon Nong Mai Daeng in Muang district.
The businessman said he hired the taxi from Pattaya to Bangkok and when the taxi arrived at the gas station, the driver said he would refill gas.
The businessman said he used a toilet and came out to find that the taxi has left with his bag. He said his bag had a wallet with Bt4,000 cash inside, a tablet computer, his passport, credit cards and several documents. He said the assets were worth about Bt100,000.
The Korean told police that all the documents were very important to him.
