Durian thieves going high tech – using drones to steal valuable fruit in Chumphon

Sanook reported that thieves are now using drones to steal Thailand’s “King of Fruits” – the much sought after durian.

An orchard owner in Chumphon in the south of the country reported that he had lost a ton of the out of season variety that fetches top prices.

This amounted to an 80,000 baht loss for Kittisak, 34.

He said that thieves were using four or five drones at night to survey his 300 trees. Signals are then sent to people on the ground who cut three or four fruit from the tops of trees making detection difficult.

The local police have proved useless, he said, so he was now resorting to his own protection measures to safeguard his crop.
