PHUKET: Phuket police quickly scooped up a pair of bag-snatch operators working in Patong late last night.

“We received a report at about 11:40pm from a witness saying that a female foreigner had her bag stolen in front of Patong Hospital while she was walking with a friend,” Sutthichai Thianpho of the Patong Police told the Phuket Gazette this morning.

From the witness’s description, police were able to spot the two suspects.
