Burglars rob MP’s company of B1m | The Thaiger

PHUKET TOWN: Burglars on Saturday night broke into exporting company Jianvanich Office, of which Phuket Democrat MP Anchalee Vanich-Thepabutr is Managing Director, and stole cash and jewelry worth about 1 million baht. Pol Lt Parichat Jaturonphant, of Phuket Town Police Station, told the Gazette that at 11:30 yesterday morning, Apirak Vanich, 37, the company’s manager and K. Anchalee’s younger brother, called to report the robbery. K. Apirak told police that he went to the office on his day off to collect some “important things” that he had forgotten. He called the police after seeing that the two safes had been broken into. Police arrived at the offices on Patipat Rd to find a rope tied to the roof and hanging down the side of the building. On the third floor, they found a crowbar and three screwdrivers on the floor. Pol Sgt Maj Suwit Boonjan said that investigators believe that at least three people entered the building by swinging over the side and removing the mirrored louvers on the third floor. He added that the burglars used a crowbar to pry open the desks and the two safes in K. Apirak’s office as well as other desks on the second and third floors. In the safes were gold necklaces worth 63,000 baht, a platinum necklace with a pendant, gold jewelry worth 130,000 baht, a diamond ring, a diamond pendant, a diamond bracelet, a gold pen worth 18,000 baht, $2,000 in US coins, 445,000 baht in cash and a variety of foreign currency including Singaporean, Malaysian and Chinese coins, and 200 Swiss francs. Police say they have no leads or suspects in the case.

An Indian tourist has been rescued from drowning after getting into difficulty while swimming at Patong beach yesterday.

Patong Surf Life Saving report that around 1.30pm at Patong Beach an Indian tourist was spotted in the water, choking and fighting to stay afloat.

Lifeguards dived in and brought him back to the beach. He was not breathing and his heart has stopped beating by the time they got him back to shore. Lifeguards urgently applied CPR.

Mr Jhamnani’s heart started to beat again and he became conscious. He was taken to Vachira Phuket Hospital where he is now recovering.

Well done to the team at Patong Surf Lifesaving. I think you can expect a visit from a grateful Indian tourist in a few days.
