Two audacious thieves brazenly snatched electrical wire from a residence in Bo Win, Chon Buri, sparking concern among locals.

The victim, Prasong Tankratok, a hardworking contractor who often spends long hours away from home, found himself at the mercy of the thieves’ calculated strike. Upon returning from work on Monday, Prasong was met with the disturbing scene of his ransacked property.

Surveillance footage captured the culprits, riding a distinctive blue Honda Wave 110 motorcycle, prowling around Prasong’s house at approximately 5.07pm. Their crafty manoeuvres, including multiple changes of clothing to evade detection, hinted at a meticulously planned operation.

Describing the ordeal, Prasong lamented the thieves’ familiarity with the area, noting their strategic circling of the vicinity before pouncing on their loot. Meanwhile, his vigilant sister, Aree Pholnikorn, who was busy in the kitchen at the time, noticed the suspicious activity and attempted to rally assistance from neighbours. Alas, the thieves swiftly made off with their plunder before help could arrive.
