Bungling Thief Tries to Flee Jewellery Store With Gold Chain Only to Be Foiled by Locked Door

This is the moment a bungling thief tries to flee a jewelry shop with a gold chain only to be foiled by a locked door.

CCTV captured the moment Suphachai Panthong, 27, walked into the store in Chonburi, Thailand, on November 30 and asked to try on a gold necklace worth £500.

The thief put the chain around his neck and spent a few moments pretending to admire it before suddenly turning on his heels and sprinting towards the exit.

But the hapless crook’s escape was foiled after the owner Jarae Nitikarun, 41, had locked the door when he became suspicious.

Mr. Suphachai was forced to trudge back to the counter and hand back the necklace before waiting for police to arrive.
