An Australian man was arrested this morning after he allegedly tried to rob a Pattaya convenience store.

55 year old Vladisavljevic Alexander was arrested after police were alerted at 3 am to his activities. The alleged break in happened at a Tops Daily convenience store on Naklua Road.

A nearby security guard heard noises coming from the store and called the police. He told Thai media:

I heard some loud noises like glass shattering from the direction of the store and walked over to investigate as I had been out patrolling the nearby grounds of my hotel.

I saw the thief, who appeared to be a foreigner, and yelled for him to stop in English but the thief managed to break the door in completely before escaping inside the store.

Reportedly, police found Vladisavljevic inside a storage room trying to hide behind some boxes. The hiding place was not ideal as he was soon arrested and brought to the Pattaya City Police Station. According to police, he was not fully cooperative when asked why he allegedly broke into the store.

  1. Criminal white men everywhere, I’ve always said it and they’re fraudters everywhere they go always love abusing other races if , even DJT is a criminal and he even got to be president ??

  2. At least the headline simply read “Man Arrested”. Well done Thaiger. You see, people still read and comment on the article without the need to headline he was a “Foreigner”. I just wonder how you know he was Australian? Did he look Australian?
