Police find British Man’s Trove of Stolen Goods

British man arrested after a bunch of stolen goods found

A British man was arrested Friday on suspicion of preying on other foreign tourists to accumulate a hoard of stolen goods at his island residence.

Police arrested Charlie Machin, 53, at 1am at his rented house in the island’s Thalang district after police identified him as a suspect in the burglary of another foreign man’s home.
He’s a tourist who regularly enters and exits Thailand. We received complaints about various items being continually stolen in our area and traced them back to him,” police Lt. Col. Sa-ard Wongwianjun said Friday.

One of the items stolen was an iPhone 6. Police used its GPS to track it to Machin’s residence where they took him into custody.

A search of the dwelling turned up the missing smartphone, as well as other allegedly stolen goods including an iPad, Canon camera, Macbook, two brown wallets, four passports, ring of keys, portable hard drive, black messenger bag, Yamaha motorbike and another iPhone 6.
Sa-ard said Machin has confessed to stealing some of the stockpiled loot.

But that wasn’t all. After he was brought to the station, Machin told police he in fact had many more stolen goods hidden in his house. After conducting a second search, police had recovered a total 53 items.

Only a few items had been reclaimed so far.

One of the obstacles we’re now facing is that his victims were other tourists, and many have already gone home, so they can’t reclaim their items,” Sa-ard said.
Police said anyone who suspects the Briton may have gaffled their goods can inquire at the Choeng Thale Police Station.

According to Sa-ard, Machin will be charged with theft.

Which kind of person opposes hunting with a rifle or
a bow, either or both? A person who thinks hunting can be cruel.
But, has never gone to a slaughter house, or packing plant.
If you don’t like hunting, check out and observe at a slaughterhouse for
a day time. Hunting isn’t that bad.

Do you require chalk markers on my graduating cap?
I’d rather not. I don’t need to ruin your cap.

Well yesterday I dislocated my knee kinda bad, the
next day I fell and hurt it even more, but afterwords I cant bend
me knee, is it serious? You need to see a doctor. Even if you haven’t actually fractured anything,
your injury needs to be diagnosed and treated.
