A foreign pensioner arrived back at his Pattaya home earlier today to find that the house had been ransacked. 69 year old Christopher Knight – nationality unknown – found the safe smashed open and 16,000 Euros (around 560,000 baht) missing.
Run Siam News reports that a CCTV server and alarm system had been ripped out and thrown in the pool in an apparent attempt to hide evidence. The theft occurred at a bungalow in the Lakeview Exclusive Villa in Soi Praphanimit in Pattaya.
Nong Prue police are continuing their investigation. The property was checked for fingerprints and the wet CCTV equipment is being examined to see if anything can be recovered. A video on Ruk Siam News showed the aftermath of the theft this morning.
