CityNews – 2nd March 2020, Chiang Mai police arrested Theparat Umarin, 21, who identifies as a woman, after she was caught on CCTV stealing from her job at Chana Place Hotel.

According to police, on the 24th February, police were alerted to cash having been stolen from a hotel. After looking at CCTV it was clear that it was this new employee, who had only been at the job for two days. She clearly put her hand into the cash box, took out the cash and hid it on her body.

Once confronted, Theparat admitted to stealing 12,000 baht in cash, saying that she had travelled from Uttaradit Province to look for a job but when she saw how much cash was lying around she couldn’t resist, not knowing that there was a CCTV camera. She has since spent all the money.
