Police seized the four men at a seaside resort in Bophut, in Koh Samui district, yesterday (May 15).

They also seized stolen items, including an aerial drone, a game disk, an iPhone charger and a radio-controlled car, worth about B50,000 in total, police said.

The goods were reported stolen from a toy shop in Mae Nam around 9pm on Sunday (May 14) by four men who fled in a white Fortuner car. They were filmed by a security camera inside the shop.

The four tourists admitted to having stolen the items, according to police, and were charged with theft. 

They were identified as Chace Kylen Rudy, 21, Korri Nathaniel George, 27, Hilton Mhasvi, 20, and Saul James Ahmed, 20.

While police were still questioning them, an employee at another hotel arrived at the resort and accused the four tourists of failing to pay a food and drinks bill of B69,000.

He told police the tourists had checked into two rooms for three nights and paid the B60,000 cost via an agency.

On Sunday night they had ordered meals and drinks, including foreign whisky priced at B29,000 a bottle.

Afterwards, one of them had paid the B69,000 bill with a credit card, but the payment failed. The tourists then said they would pay the bill on Monday, but instead fled the hotel on Sunday night.

After negotiations, the suspects agreed to pay the bill.

They were held in police custody for legal action.

According to Thai media reports, the men tried unsuccessfully to bribe the arresting officers.

The cost of the rooms at the luxury seaside resort where they were caught was reported to be B35,000 a night. They had booked the room for five days, but were arrested and taken away. The card used to pay the food and drinks bill was also reported to be fake.
