Here’s something you don’t read every day. A French National, and a tourist in Thailand  was arrested earlier this week in Thailand for stealing a Huawei P30 smartphone, local media reports.

The middle aged man named Meriem Laurant according to a CCTV footage walked into a retail store in Pattaya, Thailand, at about 7.30pm posing as a customer and asked to see the Chinese handset, but was seen moments later absconding with the smartphone. He however wasn’t fortunate, as vigilante shopkeepers  who sighted him ran after him, while passers-by helped to restrain the man before police arrived and arrested him for ‘’theft at night’’. He was later charged with visa-related offenses, as it was discovered he had no proper travel documents.
