Thieves broke into the Samui apartment of Mrs. Mary H. Marler on Friday June 7th and stole many of her personal items. Mrs Marler, from France, reported the robbery to local police who have been urged, by the French tourist police, to urgently apprehend the villains and return her passport as she was due to return home to France on June 9th.

66 year old Grandmother Mrs Marler told police that she came to Koh Samui for a three week vacation with her family who are all staying in a rented holiday apartment in Soi Naklua, Moo 2 Bophut. On the night of the incident she remembers locking both the front and the back door but woke to discover that the door handle had been forced open with a knife that thief left behind and is now being kept as evidence. Many items were stolen including 50,000 baht’s worth of jewelry, 5,000 baht in cash, a laptop, a mobile phone, two credit cards, two passports, an international driving license and other items worth over one hundred thousand baht.
