A New Zealand Man Claims Robbery But is Easily Outsmarted by Police
CityNews – On 10th September, Chiang Mai City Police Station arrested Ricki Hurst (24), a New Zealand tourist who police say made a false statement concerning stolen goods.
It is believed that Hurst had told police that he was robbed and goods were stolen from his room at Jinda House on Rachawithee Road.
Police said that Hurst claimed that on 9th September, around 10 p.m., he had been at a pub and met a woman. He said that drunk he returned to his room around 2 a.m. with the woman. When he woke up his belongings were missing, Hurst had told police.
But when the police checked the apartment’s security cameras they discovered that Hurst had not returned home with a woman as he had said in his statement. Hurst soon confessed that he had made the whole thing up after reading about the doctor who was drugged and robbed. He needed money and thought that it would be easy enough to make an insurance claim for the goods he said had been stolen.
