There’s no shortage of Russian quality tourists (sic) visiting Pattaya it seems. A 44-year-old Russian holidaymaker named as Mr Grigoli Korolkov was now caught by a shop owner in South Pattaya after the foreigner had stolen a watch from his store, as he claimed, just to “have a look at it.”
Pattaya appears to attract an ever-increasing number of quality tourists (sic) at an increasingly young age. Now a 18-year-old Kuwaiti national was arrested shortly after stabbing a compatriot, also aged only 18.
The incident happened at a convenience store on Soi VC in South Pattaya just after midnight on Thursday and left the victim seriously injured.
An Algerian man was arrested on Wednesday for burgling at least six rooms at various hotels and guesthouses around Pattaya.
Pattaya One report that the 44-year-old suspect, identified as Mr. Nadir Latmir, is
thought to have been operating in the Pattaya area for a long time already. He has used the same tactics every time too, so it was easy to pinpoint the same man.
He would sneak behind hotel reception counters, steal room keys, and help himself to whatever he could find.
Unfortunately for him, he wasn’t bright enough to consider that there might be CCTV cameras watching his every move.
