Thief defecates on victims’ doorstep

PHUKET: A thief in Chalong defecated on one of her victims’ doorsteps early yesterday morning.

The perpetrator reportedly broke into four homes, primarily occupied by foreigners, at the Nga Chang villa complex in Rawai. Police reported that the crapper focused on stealing cash, although she clearly had access to other valuables.

Jake Newton, 19, an Australian Muay Thai fighter training in Phuket, discovered that several thousand baht had been taken out of his wallet after a neighborhood security guard alerted him to the fact that a woman had just had a bowel movement on his doorstep.

“I’m moving to a new place tomorrow, so I had just changed changed 250 Australian Dollars [into baht],” Mr Newton said.

His housemate, Uyen Ha, 19, also a Muay Thai fighter from Australia, said she believes the intruder had been in her villa before.

“I was sleeping and woke up in the middle of the night,” Uyen told the Phuket Gazette. “I could tell that my door was open, so I turned on the light on my mobile phone and saw a face looking at me from the doorway.”

The pair are moving from the complex today.

The intruder, a slender woman, possibly Thai, reportedly broke into the villa through an unlocked bathroom window.

Other than vengeance or raw fear, the reasons for the thief’s departing gift to the doorstep remain unclear.
