Patong Police were acting on reports from local residents that a thief had been breaking into closed properties in the area and stealing items such as water pipes, taps, and wires. Mr Kom was apprehended as he was exiting a closed building on Phra Baramee Road.

He was taken to Patong Police Station, where he faces charges of night theft and breaking and entering into accommodation without permission.
