Thai man arrested for repeated thefts at house of well-known celebrity manager

A well-known Thai celebrity manager filed a complaint against a local man for repeatedly stealing designer brand products from her home.

The transwoman celebrity manager, Suppachai “A” Srivijit, filed a theft report with the Investigation Division of the Metropolitan Police Bureau (IDMB) in mid-January after designer brand items worth about 2 million baht were stolen.

Officers investigated the matter and found that a stolen luxury brand jacket had been listed for sale on social media. The rare jacket not commonly owned by Thais prompted officers to pose as potential customers to gather information about the jacket and the seller.

This intelligence ultimately led the police to identify the culprit as 29 year old Tanandorn “Flight” Rammasute. Flight had previously faced charges for theft from A’s residence in February of the preceding year, bolstering officers’ confidence in his involvement in this latest case.

Officers raided Flight’s house in Soi Lat Phrao 94 in the Wang Thonglang district of Bangkok on January 29. Flight admitted to the theft and returned some of the stolen valuables to the police such as the Balmain Paris jacket, Versace jacket, Hermes shoes, etc.

Flight confessed in tears that he had a huge debt of more than 10 million baht because of online gambling. Before turning to crime, he was a singer. He was one of ten leading candidates when a Thai heavy metal band, Retrospect, was looking for a new singer, and this gave him a chance to meet A.

Flight said A trusted him and allowed him to visit her home several times. Gambling debts then forced him to steal A’s possessions in February. A caught him stealing and reported him to the police, worsening his life.

Flight was charged under Section 335 of the Criminal Law: committing theft in a dwelling place. The penalty is imprisonment from one to five years and a fine from 20,000 to 100,000 baht.

A is the manager of one of Thailand’s most famous actresses, Phatcharapha “Aum” Chaichuea. As well as being famous for her career, A is also known for her kindness, as she attends various charity events.
