“Caught in the Act! Transgender Jewel Thief Strikes Sin City Once Again! Pattaya Police Unmask 39-Year-Old Suspect in Gold Theft Drama”
In a startling revelation, yet another case of a transgender magpie thief has unfolded in Pattaya’s infamous Sin City. This time, a 39-year-old transgender woman was apprehended at a condominium in Pattaya’s Nong Prue district, accused of a daring gold heist in the dead of night. The victim, a 40-year-old Indian tourist, reported the disappearance of a mesmerizing gold bracelet worth a staggering 200,000 baht.
The incident unfolded around 9 PM in a shadowy alley on Pattaya’s lively Walking Street. Led by the tenacious duo, Deputy Director Piyapong Ensan of Pattaya City Police Station and Tourist Police officer Thananon Athipansi, the authorities promptly identified the suspect, Saranpat Bowornkitnusorn, thanks to the watchful eye of CCTV footage. The evidence served as a catalyst for her immediate arrest.
Her previous brush with the law, a theft arrest in 2020, cast doubt on her claims. Despite her protestations of innocence, the police moved forward with the case, according to reports by KhaoSod.
During their painstaking investigation, the authorities meticulously scrutinized the CCTV footage, revealing a figure of feminine appearance committing the theft near a popular cannabis shop on the vibrant Walking Street. The police diligently tracked the suspect’s escape route and eventually uncovered that Saranpat resided in the very condominium under scrutiny.
Although the suspect admitted to being the person captured in the CCTV footage, she staunchly denied snatching the tourist’s priceless bracelet, insisting that she merely stirred him from his slumber. However, disbelief loomed large due to Saranpat’s criminal background, having faced theft charges in 2020. As the police continue their relentless investigation, the suspect remains in custody, the truth hanging in the balance.
