Cambodian ladyboys nabbed for robberies in Hua Hin

Post by buksida » Sun Jan 14, 2018 11:44 am

Hua Hin police have arrested two Cambodian ladyboys and their Cambodian accomplice for allegedly having snatched gold necklaces from foreign tourists in the popular seaside town in Prachuap Khiri Khan.

Hua Hin police chief Pol Colonel Sitthichai Srisophacharoenrat held a press conference on Saturday to announce the arrest of Kongluan, 25, Ngaporn, 26, and another Cambodian man, Touchwon, 24. Police seized several gold necklaces from them.

Sitthichai said the Hua Hin police station had received complaints from several western tourists that two Cambodian ladyboys approached and spoke with them before snatching their gold necklaces and fleeing.

Sitthichai said police learned that the two ladyboys let Touchwon, who is a sex worker in Hua Hin, keep the necklaces for them and later sold the necklaces and shared the money. He said they admitted to preying on western tourists in Pattaya before they fled to Hua Hin.

The wife saw them walk into Binta at the top-end (near temple)..They soon picked up pace when they realised the 2 bars near us had about 15 L/Bs.. wifey also spotted their un-easiness.
BUT..Soon after there was an incident at a bar near the temple-end of Binta, & the MiB came in droves (ambulance too)
IMO the Cambodian L/Bs may have used this as a distraction to fleece tourists at the other end of Binta..?
I also heard that some Thais saw them snatch the necklaces & shouted out..+ gave chase..at which point the L/Bs dropped the gold items & fled (as fast as their high heels could carry them).
