A Thai man who broke into a phone shop to steal and distribute to the homeless has been arrested by police.
Most of us know Robin Hood – a hero who always ‘steals’ things from the rich to give to the poor.
While the usual Robin Hood often wears the clothes of the archers in the past, a man in Thailand decided to put a little ‘variation’ and create his own Robin Hood story.
A 23-year-old man wearing only one pair of ‘underpants’ while breaking into Banana IT phone stores in Bangkok to steal his phone was arrested earlier this week.
According to the Bangkok newspaper, CCTV footage shows that authorities caught a male thief named Jeh-isma-ae Hama, at a Banana IT store in Muang district, Nakhon Nayok at 3 am. the day before he was arrested.
The audio recordings and evidence show that the ‘lackless Robin Hood’ allegedly stole 128 items – most of them phones – worth about 1.9 million baht (1 billion VND) from a store phone.
Four wanted warrants over six months, the Royal Thai Police were finally able to arrest the man in a rented apartment room in Bangkok’s Bang Kapi district today.
Police found a total of 89 mobile phones in motel rooms found across the district.
Pol Maj Gen Theeradet Thamsuthee, investigation director of the Provincial Police Region 2, said: “This man was about to leave for Narathiwat with a stolen phone number, but we stopped him in time.”
The Thai news platform said he told police: “I only shopped at Banana because I like bananas and I like yellow. I like to take off my clothes and put on only one pair of underwear. That gives me a sense of confidence and I feel like myself. “
He also added that he chose mobile phone stores from the online map and the reason he stole the phone was because he didn’t have them when he was younger, unlike his peers. his.
Like Robin Hood, Jeh-isma-ae Hama stole these phones and then distributed the proceeds from the sale of the phones to the homeless at Hua Lamphong train station, Sanam Luang ground in Bangkok. and in Narathiwat. He also revealed that he was also homeless in the past.
