Chiang Mai bound tour bus had “secret passageway” to enable easy theft

A tour bus plying the Bangkok to Chiang Mai route had been fitted with a secret passageway for staff to steal tourist’s belongings easily.

The modification was fitted behind the driver’s seat and provided in-journey access to the valuables in the luggage compartment.

Officials at the Chiang Mai Land Transport office found the passageway after reports from three Brazilian tourists and an Israeli that they had suffered loss of money totaling 90,000 from their bags on a trip from Banglamphu to the northern capital, reported Thai News Agency.

Yesterday local land chief Charnchai Kilapaeng and his staff spray painted a red symbol on the vehicle meaning it cannot be used for service for an indefinite period.

Several charges were laid against the company including illegal adaptation of a vehicle and changing an engine number. The driver was banned from driving for three years.
