On the 5th of October thieves stole electrical appliances and electric cables from a villa in the Blue Sky Villa complex in Hua Thanon.

Prior to the robbery a worker saw the house open at 5pm but assumed that the rental villa was occupied by villa guests as it has no live in staff. At around 7pm another worker saw that there was an emergency light on, but assumed whoever was renting the property was simply enjoying low lighting.break in 1

When the villa manager was called by an agent to show the villa to a potential customer she found the main gate was unlocked and discovered on entry that the kitchen cabinets were open and all of the electrical appliances were gone. On further investigation she found that part of the ceiling was missing in the bedroom.

It seems that the thieves had entered the property without actually breaking in but had simply arrived after dark, fearlessly walked in and then spent a considerable amount of time cutting and removing all of the wiring from the property. They also disconnected the water and air con units to make it easy to come back and remove them later.

The police were informed and arrived on the scene three hours after the first call was made, and after four more calls were made by the villa manager who remained at the villa in the dark. The police asked what had been taken and told the villa managerbreak in 3 to report the matter to the Bophut police station. The villa manager asked the police to dust for fingerprints as the villa had only just been opened and the robber had taken water from the fridge to drink and left the bottle under the house near the mains electricity box. The police refused as they believed there would be too many prints as many people had been inside the house and that kind of investigation would prove ineffective.

The thieves made off with the entire electrical wiring from the house, A TV, the DVD player, numerous DVD’s, speakers, a flash light, a vacuum cleaner, washing powder, a rice cooker, three pots, two pans, a three knife set and cutting board, six wine glasses, two coffee mugs, a microwave, a toaster, a kettle, a blender, three pool towels, one table and one chair.
It is believed that the thieves maybe setting up home in the area.

The owner of the villa is very keen to sell it, the asking price is twelve million baht, however after this incident the asking price is open to negotiation.
