Katarine Pereira, 39, filed a complaint with Thalang Police at about 6am yesterday (Jan 7) about the theft at Villas Aelita Pool Villa Resort, Moo 4, Baan Don, Thepkrasattri Rd, Thalang.

Capt Suporn Muangkhai Deputy Inspector of the Thalang Police received the complaint and went to inspect the scene.

“There are several villas at the scene and each villa has a high privacy wall. Authorities have inspected the scene of the incident at villa B1 and noted that there are footprints of the suspects inside the room,” said Capt Supron.

We traced the surrounding area at several points including the wall behind the villa and coordinated with officer from the Police Forensic Science Center 8,” he said.

“Ms Pereira said she and her eight friends had checked in to the villa on Jan 5 and was set to leave Jan 9.

The day before the incident, on the evening of Jan 6, they held a party and went to sleep in different rooms at about 1am after which it began to rain heavily,” he added.

Later, at around 5:30am, one of Ms Pereira’s friends discovered footprints and traces of a break-in at the property. He woke up Ms Pereira and other friends and they checked and found that two rooms’ doors were unlocked,” he added.

Capt Suporn explained that stolen possessions included a United States Permanent Resident card (green card), travel book, five credit cards, seven B1,000 banknotes and three B100 banknotes.

A further US$600 in cash was also taken, along with one Louis Vuitton handbag, two Michael Kors handbags, one Furla handbag, various items of jewellery including green gemstones, a set of earrings, and a bracelet, a silver ring with red and blue gemstones.

Also, one cosmetic bag containing cosmetics, a bag containing an Oral B1 electric toothbrush. The total value of the stolen items is estimated to be at B400k,” said Capt Suporn.

Officers have questioned the residents of the villa, and we are checking CCTV cameras in the villa and nearby to find the criminal/s and prosecute them according to the law,” he added.

Try reading the website of the property concerned to answer your queries which the tenants would have done. Also read the article re: the locked/unlocked rooms. It's rather presumptuous to conclude it was desperate poor people that were responsible. It be anyone.

Not a single word about 24 hour resort security.
Wasn't there any?
Is there no safe in that villa to store values?
Did they lock/checked doors before sleeping?
Values you can't store in safe, keep them in your bedroom when you sleep.
A bit of prevention doings can safe you a lot of trouble on Phuket.
Don't forget, there are a lot of poor people on Phuket who have nothing to loose...
