Eaktat, originally from Chainat Province, admitted to police that he had regularly broken into people's homes during the night and stolen whatever he could find. He said he had been a burglar for four years, adding that it made him good money.
Phuket City police searched his home and seized a long list of stolen goods, including Buddhist amulets, laptop computers, watches, cellphones and even motorcycles.
