Two Pattaya ladyboys were arrested on Tuesday for allegedly stealing a wallet with three credit cards from a South Korean tourist, say police.
The two suspects were identified as Sawarin Silaket, 33 and Onkaew Homdok, 35.
Pattaya police chief Pol Colonel Prawit Chorseng said the arrest was made after Hojun Cho, 44, filed a complaint with his police station on Sunday morning, saying that his wallet was stolen.
Cho said he was walking back to his hotel from the South Pattaya Walking Street when two ladyboys approached, hugged him and left.
He later discovered that his wallet containing three credit cards was gone.
Police checked and found that two credit cards were used at a grocery store.
Police identified the two suspects from security-camera footage from the shop, and located and arrested them at a boarding house in South Pattaya.
