BANGKOK: Bangkok’s Chokchai police arrested two members of a key chain-selling homeless gang for stealing carp fish for consumption from a resident’s pond on the night of June 24.
Facing the theft charge, Heman Sudchaliew, 26, and Srisamorn Larpluam 34, claimed that they didn’t make any money from key chain selling and were hungry.
They confessed to stealing 10 large carp, one red tilapia fish and one albino catfish.
Police are looking for the duo’s elusive accomplice, a 30-year-old man nicknamed Jack. The police probe also found that the trio stole four carp fish from a shop in Soi Sukhonthasawat 24 on June 21.
Insurance agent Rawadee Kiatkamjornpattana last month had published on her Facebook page the CCTV footage of a woman and two men allegedly stealing the carp from the pond in front of her issuance firm’s office in Soi Latphrao 101.
Her posting urged people to help her down the alleged thieves. She had raised the carp for over a decade, she wrote, and they had high sentimental value.
