Caught on CCTV! Australian steals Thai woman’s bag at Suvarnabhumi departures

An Australian man who is a frequent visitor to Thailand was arrested at the airport after he took a Thai woman’s bag and disappeared with it into the handicapped toilets.

The woman had left her bag outside the ladies on the fourth floor near exit 7 while she went in. But John Peter Robertson, 54, saw an opportunity.

He was caught on CCTV taking the bag and going into the toilets himself. Then he went to a booth to exchange money.

But the woman – from Chiang Rai and bound for Dubai – had immediately reported losing her bag to security.

They checked the cameras and an arrest was made.

Robertson was charged with theft.

Kittipong Kittikhajorn of the airport police warned travelers to keep their bags with them at all times.
