Subin Chingram, 28, was arrested near an apartment in Soi Lat Krabang 6 in Bangkok’s Lat Krabang district on Wednesday (Feb 22) at 5pm, eight hours after the bag’s owner reported the theft to the Suvarnabhumi Airport Police Station.

The Nakhon Ratchasima native was taken to a briefing at the station yesterday (Feb 23). 

Police said the passenger, whose name was withheld, left Thailand on Thai Airways International flight TG431 on Feb 18 and filed a complaint on Wednesday that a gold necklace, gold ring and cash were missing from the bag.

Col Monthian Baothong, Chief of Suvarnabhumi Airport Police Station, said investigators checked security camera footage and found a loader, identified later as Subin, handling the victim’s bag and they suspected him of the theft.

Police were able to locate him that evening near his apartment. Subin allegedly confessed that he had stolen the missing items from the THAI passenger’s bag. Officials searched his room and found the stolen assets.

Subin allegedly told police he had stolen valuables from passengers’ bags several times before being caught.

Col Monthian said other stolen assets found in the room included three mobile phones, a tablet, a digital camera and two watches.

The suspect was charged with stealing on the airport grounds which carries a jail term of 1-5 years and a fine of B2,000-B10,000.

@Jogi, not at all mate, and certainly did not say or imply that.  Checkin bags are liable to be lost or damaged, as well as being broken in to.  You should never put valuables into a checkin bag, it's just common sense!

@ Discover Thainess i agree, not very clever to have jewellery and cash in checkin bag, but this is not the point of the story. hope you don't believe, because the traveler made a mistake, the baggage handler deserve a medal
