The final upshot | Thaiger

BANGKOK: Police arrested a 27-year-old man after he was caught taking photos up a girl’s skirt at a motor show at Central Plaza on Phra Ram III Rd last month. Worakarn Jaruphat was collared by security guards after “Amp”, a young woman taking part in the Miss Motorshow Contest, grabbed his wrist when she felt something touch her legs. When police officers inspected Worakarn’s knapsack, they found it contained a digital camera. A hole had been cut into the side of the bag, allowing the camera lens to zoom in and out. Worakarn, who told police he was a researcher working for the Finance Ministry, claimed he had wanted to take some photos – but got caught before he had the chance. His camera showed otherwise. He admitted to taking pictures up girls’ skirts twice before – at Thammasart University. These photos, he said, had been for “personal use” only and he had not sold them. He was charged, nevertheless, with taking obscene pictures with intent to distribute. Police kept the pictures of Amp’s undies that were stored in Worakarn’s camera – as evidence, of course.
