French Tourist Arrested For Stealing Smartphone

A French tourist was caught by angry locals in Pattaya when he tried to steal the new Huawei P30 smartphone.

Meriem Laurent, 40, walked into the store at Tukcom Pattaya on Wednesday night at around 9pm posing as a customer and asked to see the Chinese handset.

But moments later he ripped the smartphone from its holder and fled – only to be set upon by furious shopkeepers after an alarm was triggered.

Cops were soon on the scene and the Huawei phone, priced at 31,900-baht, found in his possession. There was no denying the theft as it had all been caught on camera and the Frenchman was taken into custody and charged.

It was then discovered Laurent had also entered Thailand illegally.
