Farang on bicycle enters temple and steals 1,000 baht donation money

CCTV footage at a temple in Ayuthaya showed a Caucasian man aged about 40-45 arrive on a bicycle and stop outside.

After puffing coolly on a cigarette he goes inside where another camera catches him casing the joint before he checks no one is watching and steals 1,000 baht from a donation tree in the chapel.

He was not interested in the 500s, 100s or 20s on the tree – he just wanted the bigger note, reported Thai Rath.

Reporters went to the temple of Wat Panomyong where monk Phra Natthapong, 52, told them that the incident happened on Sunday afternoon about 2pm.

Some people had donated money and Phra Natthapong had left the chapel for a while. When he came back he thought money was missing so he checked the two cameras the temple had installed.

He said he had not reported the matter to police – he just wanted to warn other temples and people in the area to watch out for this foreigner on a bicycle.
