Man Steals cash from Donation Box at Temple but doesn’t get far
CityNews – On 22nd August, 9.30 a.m. Changphuek Police Station received a call from Wat Jed Yod saying that a man had attempted to steal money from the donation box in the Wiharn, at Wat Jed Yod.
When police arrived, villagers had already made a citizens arrest. On the man they found a screw driver, a small hammer and some coins. The man, Rong Dhamma-Aksorn, 34, is from Mae Rim, Chiang Mai.
Monk Baidheeka Worawut Jeerawuttho, the assistant abbot, said he welcomed guests to the temple to make merit in the morning. Although on this particular morning he was quite shocked when he viewed a security camera and saw a man in the Wiharn trying to open the donation box. He immediately asked bystanders for help. The man made a run for it and climbed a fence, the abbot said, though he was soon captured. The abbot told police how he knew the man as he often came to the temple, though he had no idea he was a thief. He added that for some time money had been going missing from the temple, and that is why they put in security cameras.
