PATTAYA: -- A video at a beer bar in Pattaya shows how an Omani tourist had his phone stolen as he was enjoying a drink.

 

A young fake brand watch seller comes in with his wares and uses the merchandise as cover as he slips his hand under to steal the phone.

 

It was all caught on the bar CCTV.

 

Stolen was a 10,000 baht value Samsung smartphone.

 

The matter was reported to police but the thief got away without a trace.

 

Tnews reported that theft by watch sellers was a perennial problem. There had also been physical assault cases both against tourists for refusing buy and bar owners for refusing to let them in, said the news media.
