Fifty-six-year old Chalong resident Jaroen Chamnanyon has posted a giant message to burglars after his house was ransacked on November 18.
His message to the criminals: “Dear thieves and robbers, all the Buddha images I had collected are gone. Please don’t waste your time coming here again.”
Apart from his precious collection of images of famed Wat Chalong abbot Luang Phor Chaem, the burglars ran off with a laptop computer and a .38 pistol with 10 bullets, altogether valued at around B1 million.
Mr Jareon erected the sign outside his house in Soi Chao Fa yesterday afternoon (November 27).
Neighbours said he was upset over the robbery and the fact that the police had made no progress towards catching the burglars and retrieving his prized effigies.
Mr Jaroen said he had a full collection of every Luang Poh Cham effigy produced from the first, made in 1941, up to the latest, made in 2013.
He said he posted the message to tell the thief not to waste time raiding his house again because there was nothing left in his house worth stealing, and added that he wanted police to catch the perpetrators, who he believes are a gang.
Jaroen said that the thieves might be the same people who had stolen a valuable Luang Poh Chaem image from Wat Chalong.
Col Krittapas Dejintarason, Chalong police superintendent, said, “I asked investigators to follow this case but the investigation was slowed down because we had to send officers to maintain public safety during the Asian Beach Games
“But now we have our men back and we will work on finding the burglar and bringing him to justice as soon as possible.”
