PHUKET: A motorbike taxi driver caught red-handed with a bag full of used bras and panties was later found in possession of thousands of women’s undergarments at his home.

After arresting 46-year-old Phanu Phloisuwan on September 26, Samut Prakarn City police found a trove of more than 5,000 undergarments, mostly stolen from washing lines over a two-year period.

Most of the items were found hanging from walls inside Mr Phanu’s apartment, while others were scattered in piles on the floor. Still more were stuffed into plastic bottles.

After his arrest, Mr Phanu told police that the sight of women’s underwear sexually aroused him, so he stole them and used them for “sexual gratification”.

The hero that ended Mr Phanu’s spree was Chuchat Dulyaphatson, the ladyboy village headman of Village 3 in Tambon Thaibanmai.

After receiving numerous reports of panty theft from young women in the area, Mr Chuchart handed Mr Phanu over to police on September 26.

Mr Phanu told police that some of the underwear was given to him, some he bought himself and the rest was snatched from washing lines outside apartment blocks and rental homes in the neighborhood.

Mr Chuchart said he went to investigate after hearing reports of stolen underwear from teenage girls, students and night workers.

On the morning of September 26, Mr Chuchart was searching the neighborhood with a police officer when he noticed Mr Phanu acting suspiciously.

When they opened the suspect’s bag, they found it full of women’s underwear.

Samut Prakarn City Police Deputy Superintendent Somphon Wongsrisoonthorn said Mr Phanu will be charged with theft.

Mr Chuchart is asking any women in the area who have lost underwear to come forward to inspect the panty haul and see if their undergarments are among those swiped by Mr Phanu.

Strong wind and waves this morning closes Phuket’s beaches, one swimmer rescued | The Thaiger

Phuket’s Rawai Mayor, Aroon Solos, ordered all beaches in the area to close after a foreigner was rescued this morning after being unable to make it back to shore. The foreigner was swimming off Ao Sane beach, just north of the popular Nai Harn Beach, when lifeguards were sent out to help bring him back to shore. The recent weather has been partly attributed to Tropical Storm Noul as other beaches areas around Patong have been closed since Friday. Mayor Aroon ordered both the Nai Harn and Ya Nui beaches closed until further notice. Noul crossed over the Vietnamese coastline […]

Phuket residents going hungry after local government assistance runs out | The Thaiger

Residents in Phuket, particularly those living in and around the west coast townships, are reportedly going hungry as the government’s municipal budget to provide food has been depleted. Despite efforts to revive tourism in the area, thousands of people are still in need of donated food to survive and continue to queue up for donated food every day. A public relations staff member at the Patong municipality says, sadly, there is no budget to do any more food handouts in the near future and that there is no word on when or if there will be any more handouts.
