Pattaya police arrested a Thai woman on charges of drugging and robbing her foreign date in Bangkok, making off with a Rolex watch and a gold chain worth over 500,000 baht. The incident, which took place on June 20, came to light after the foreign tourist complained to the Huai Khwang Police Station.

The complaint alleged that the tourist was drugged and robbed of a 430,000-baht gold chain, a 150,000-baht gold bracelet, a luxury Rolex watch, several brand-name clothes, and 800 Singapore dollars (21,600 baht) by a Thai woman he had met on social media. The tourist revealed he had been in a relationship with the suspect for four years.

On June 19, around 10.30pm, the woman visited the tourist at his hotel room in the Thiam Ruam Mit area, Huai Khwang district. While they were chatting and eating, the tourist went to the bathroom. Upon returning, he suddenly felt dizzy, as if he had been drugged, and subsequently fell unconscious.

When he regained consciousness, he discovered his property was missing and the woman had disappeared. The tourist then filed a complaint with the police.

The police investigation identified the suspect as 33 year old Kittiyakorn. Law enforcement tracked her down to a condominium in Soi Phra Tamnak 1 in Pattaya and arrested her on July 5 while she was still in her pyjamas.

Further investigation revealed that Kittiyakorn had a prior criminal record for theft and was wanted on two arrest warrants issued by Pattaya Provincial Court and Min Buri Criminal Court. Upon her arrest, Kittiyakorn was found in possession of a Rolex watch, believed to be one of the stolen items.

Kittiyakorn was taken into custody and charged with nighttime theft. She did not issue a statement to the press, reported Pattaya News.
