CCTV footage of the incident shows the 30-year-old trans thief pretended to hug the unsuspecting Western man while he was walking on the sidewalk along Sukhumvit Road. He didn’t notice her quick hands nimbly snatch the golden necklace from around his neck while he recorded a […]

They did all of the above because of the media attention, mainly the video.

And I doubt, that this "she" will stay long in prison.

I am wondering, that the guy did not act a little "pushy" , while something unknown wanted to hug him.

Even without Covid, I would not wanna let that happen.

Oh, anyone read something about the dealer of this "she", who wanted to repay debts ( most read excuse, these days, from pick pockets and thiefs, methinks)? The gold shop is part of the problem, receiving stolen goods. And from a Thai national , a western standard necklace, not even a baht clasp (judged by the time "she" needed), assumingly only 585, in best case 750, not the prefered 23k gold in Thailand, should raise suspicion anyway.

So, the police is going after this dealer of stolen goods?

Repeat offender so “she” won’t be eligible for any sentence reduction until the first general amnesty AFTER August 2024. 99.99% possibility of being refused parole after 1/3 served for the same reason. So an absolute bare minimum of 2 years & 4 months to serve even if ”she” pleads guilty and receives a 50% sentence reduction for that “co-operation”. I’d bet a 26,000 baht necklace on release after 3+ years served.

For sure. The accused will co-operate with the police in the hope of getting a maximum 50% sentence reduction from the judge in return for “helping the police”, pleading guilty and expressing overwhelming remorse that her actions have stained Thailand’s reputation and cast a shadow on the tourism sector. If it is a gold shop involved then the owner won’t face charges and has to give the necklace to the police. And the police will get a photo op and or a “gift” from the foreigner for returning the necklace.

The mirror they look in would most probably be a good place to start.

So go and visit “her” in prison in about 2 or 3 months when “she” will be sentenced. You know you want to …….

Probably Bangkok Remand Prison. You  cannot legally bring anything for a prisoner, only pay money into their store account and purchase items at the prison store.  Ladyboys have their own cell so sadly there is no sweet spooning on the concrete floor under the pleasant glow of the constantly lit fluorescent lights. Why not pay “her” bail and enjoy the gobbling gratitude? Just make sure they put a GPS tracking device on it so you get your 200,000baht bail money back.

When will the stolen necklace be returned to the owner ? 
Is it required to tip the police for the return of the necklace ?

is there a law in Thailand to not buy stolen property ?

The necklace will be returned when the press, uninvolved senior cops and farang are available to take the mandatory photos for dissemination on the Interwebs. Gifts are always appreciated in Thailand but a glowing statement from the farang reaffirming that this crime was a rarity in the Land of Honesty will probably suffice in this viral case. The gold shop has plausible deniability so they are out of pocket for the money paid to the thief and that will probably be the end of the matter.
