Pattaya trader makes citizen's arrest after Russian steals a watch
Trader Phairat Kanchananithi, 44, said Grigoli Korolkov, 44, came into his shop ostensibly to buy a watch on Wednesday. But while his attention was distracted for just a second or two he pocketed a Naviforce watch worth 1,200 baht, reported .He soon realized the Russian had stolen it and went in search of him. He found the Russian at the Wat Chaimonkhon intersection in South Pattaya and held onto him before police arrived. At Pattaya police station Korolkov denied theft saying he did not intend to hold onto the watch and just wanted to have a look at it. Police dismissed this and charged him with theft.
Commentary: The Russian denied stealing the watch saying he just wanted to have a look at it? What? As back in his hotel room before he paid for it???? Lol..
