Police are hunting down a gang of three to four male shoe thieves who have been running around Sri Phum Sub-district late at night stealing expensive shoes from hostels.

According to one hostel owner, the gang had raided his guests’ shoes over half a dozen times over the past three months. “There are ten hostels on my street,” said the owner of the hostel. “Nearly all of us have been raided recently with over 300 pairs of shoes having been stolen.”

Police urge guesthouses to tell their clients to hide their shoes inside their rooms, especially if they are brand shoes.
