    Is that like the captain going under with his ship?

    dead inside his tuk-tuk
    At his funeral "at least he died doing something he loved*"

    *ripping people off

    No great loss imo. May have upset one policeman too many? Or is it taxi mafia v tuk-tuk mafia?

    And sometimes the opposite

    I'd say this guy is lucky police got him first; robbing a Phuket tuk-tuk would have earned a good beating if the drivers had caught him

    British national arrested after robbing tuk-tuk driver
    October 27, 2016



    A British tourist was arrested and charged with theft yesterday after stealing a tuk-tuk driver’s wallet and other possessions from inside the taxi’s cab while it was parked in Karon last week.

    After reporting the theft to Karon police on Saturday, the tuk-tuk driver, Tawatchai Namwong, posted a warning about the pilfering farang on social media.

    The post read: ‘A foreigner in a white car drove up and parked behind my tuk-tuk while I stepped into a Family Mart outlet in Karon. I had not locked my vehicle. The man opened the driver’s side door and stole my ATM card, driving licence and other documents. Please be very careful and lock your car door every time in order to protect your belongings.’

    Police captured the suspect in Patong yesterday afternoon.

    “He is a 27-year-old British tourist, named Aaron Walter, and he had been staying at the Karon Princess Hotel but checked out on the same day as the theft, but he had rented a white Honda Jazz from a car rental place in Patong,” confirmed Karon Police captain Weerayut Thansirisukhaworakul.

    Should have turned him over to the Tuk-tuk drivers to take "care of".

    I have no sympathy for idiots of any nation.
