On November 23rd, police in Thailand’s resort of Pattaya responded to a shoplifting case at a souvenir shop. Miss “Kanokpat”, a shop employee, showed police a CCTV clip showing a foreign tourist sneaking 3 bottles of lotion, worth over one thousand 700 baht, into his shopping bag. Kanokpat said that, when a Russian couple walked in, the female asked her a number of questions in an attempt to distract her. Kanokpat asked to search his bag but the Russian refused. At the police station, where the suspects are being detained, 57 year old Grigoriy Pavlov gestured towards reporters.
