A Russian man who stole a computer from a friend in Pattaya told police he had HIV in an attempt to avoid being arrested.
Mr Kuznetsov told police that he returned to his room at Sombat Condominium to find it ransacked and items missing.
After checking CCTV, police discovered that Kuliasov had come to visit Mr Kuznetsov at his condo only to find the room unlocked and his friend not there.
Kuliasov then stole a Lenovo laptop and some personal documents before escaping on a Honda Click motorcycle.
The stolen items were later found in Kuliasov’s condo.
As he was being arrested Kuliasov pleaded with officers saying: “Please don’t arrest me, I have HIV”.
However, police told reporters they have been unable to find any evidence that Kuliasov has been receiving treatment or taking medication for HIV.
Kuliasov remains in custody at Pattaya police station.
