Phuket thief robs room while Chinese tourist couple still sleep
Thalang Police were notified of the break-in, at Supalai Pasak Resort & Spa in Pa Khlok, on Phuket’s east coast, at 10:30am yesterday. Officers led by investigator Lt Phetthon Changaid arrived and found the balcony door had been forced open.
Zhang Min, 24, told police that she and her partner, Lai Gang, 28, went out to Patong at about 11pm and returned to their room at about 1am. The couple, both from Sichuan, went to sleep and woke the next morning to find a friend staying next door telling them that a bag was on the ledge between the balconies to the two rooms.
