3 rooms robbed and 500,000 Baht's ($10000 ) worth of valuables taken from locked safes in south Pattaya Hotel.
It appears there is a spate of robberies occurring at hotels around Pattaya at this time and we urge all tourists to ensure that all valuable items are well secured. In the early hours of wednesday morning, police were called to a popular hotel located in Soi 15 which connects soi beokeow with Pattaya second road. Three rooms on the 4th floor had been broken into and valuables had been stolen from the room safe boxes. Police noticed that the doors had not been forced open and the safe boxes had been opened without any force. This suggested to them that someone inside the hotel may have been involved or a professional group who known how to bypass door entry security systems and safe box combination locks were involved. All three rooms were occupied by english tourists and they were taken to Pattaya Police Station to make a report of the incident. A total of 500,000 Baht's($ 10.000,-) worth of cash and valuables were stolen.
CCTV is now being checked at the hotel as police attempt to locate and arrest those who committed the theft.
