Mr. Mohsen along with an unidentified accomplice stole 60 thousand baht from food vendors in Ayutthaya and Lampang — he was busted in Bangkok after a local recognized him from pictures on TV and informed authorities.
On April 2nd, 2021, the office of Immigration Police announced the arrest of Mr. Bouri Nabdeh Mohsen, an Iranian national who was connected to at least two thefts in Thailand.
The first theft happened in Ayutthaya province on March 20th, 2020. Mr. Mohsen along with an unidentified accomplice went to buy Kanom Jeen from a food vendor.
The two purchased the food and then confused the vendors, eventually taking a stack of 20,000 baht. One of the thieves distracted the food vendor and the other stole the money.
Mr. Mohsen was in Lampang later in the year, and on December 1st, 2020, he did the same thing with another food vendor, this time stealing 40,000 baht.
A warrant was issued for his arrest on December 15th, 2020 in Lampang Provincial Court.
Investigators received a tip from a Bangkok citizen that they recognized the culprit from the video at a condo. Royal Thai Police found Mr. Bouri Nabdeh Mohsen hiding out at a condo on Rama IX Road Soi 17.
The investigators used PIBICS and the BIOMETRICS database to confirm the identity of the suspect in all of the crimes. Mr. Mohsen was arrested and is detained pending further legal action.
The second accomplice in the Ayutthaya theft has not been identified and is presumably on the loose. The pair are suspected in other thefts throughout Thailand.
