A close acquaintance of renowned Thai comedian Jazz Chuanchuen has been issued with an arrest warrant for making off with several items from Jazz’s extensive shoe collection, worth over 300,000 baht.

Min Buri Police Station Chief, Police Colonel Kris Komnoi, stated that investigators had gathered evidence, particularly from a social media livestream by the individual claiming responsibility for the break-in and theft. This evidence has led to an application for an arrest warrant from the Minburi Criminal Court for burglary, involving property damage intended to prevent entry. The court has granted the warrant.

Pol. Col. Kris further revealed that the suspect admitted during the livestream to committing the crime and distributing the stolen shoes. The investigative team has been urgently tasked with apprehending the suspect to proceed with legal action. Once captured, the suspect’s fingerprints will be compared with those collected at the scene to confirm their identity.

The investigation has unveiled that the suspect, a 40 year old man, is a close associate of Jazz Chuanchuen’s family and internal family conflicts might have been a driving factor behind the theft, reported KhaoSod.

The police are dedicated to not only capturing the individual responsible but also determining the distribution of the stolen goods.
