On Sunday the online version of the South China Morning Post featured a story about Chinese nationals stealing at Bangkok’s principal airport.

Two recent cases in November resulted in arrests after thieves arriving at the airport went to the wrong carousel for their flight and targeted expensive looking bags.

But there are many cases of theft that go unresolved, said Thai Rath.

They listed six tips from a local female police captain to help avoid becoming a victim.

Pol Capt Preeyakarn Saleeworarot advised passengers to go to the allotted carousel without delay, make sure your bag is clearly identifiable, has labels in Thai and English and airline tags.

She further warned people not to have valuables in their loaded bags and not have third parties pick up luggage.
