The theft occurred at Mae Malee 7 gold shop on Na Muang road in Muang municipality area.

Uthumporn Sinmai, 35, a saleswoman at the shop, told police that two foreign men of middle eastern appearance arrived at her shop shortly before midday yesterday, Capt Winai Kerdsuwan, deputy investigation chief, said.

One man was wearing a white T-shirt bearing the words “HAT YAI Thailand”, and the other man an orange singlet with the words “I love PHUKET”. They showed an interest in buying a gold ring.

While discussing the price the man in the white T-shirt asked to also see a five-baht weight gold bracelet, worth B102,000. The man in the orange vest started talking with her while his friend took B2,800 from his wallet to pay for the ring, Ms Uthumporn said.

After they had left the shop, she discovered the gold bracelet was missing. A security camera recording from inside the shop showed the man in the white T-shirt covering the bracelet with his wallet.
