Pickpocket 2013 picks valuable stuffs on Tuk Tuk

130327 10a

You have probably heard about – and perhaps seen – pickpockets snatching valuables from people riding on motorbikes.

Bags, necklaces and phones are the favoured targets, but now there are reports that some pickpockets are also stealing from passengers on tuk tuks.

This is not funny, but the fact it has happened should  make tuk tuk passengers guard their valuables even more diligently.

As a tuk tuk driver who has met with this experience, Chhay Buntha, 42, says: “I have seen pickpockets rip  necklaces from passengers on tuk tuks right in front of me.

“Since then, I have always been very careful with my customers.”

Moreover, he added, “That’s why I put the iron neat behind my Tuk Tuk in order to protect the pickpockets who mostly pick the things at the behind only, because in the corners, I always can see from my mirrors.

“So if the pickpockets pick something from my customers, I will crush them. But as well as being careful myself, I also tell my customers not to be careless as well.”

Actually because of this carefulness, it makes customers of Buntha never meet with this accident even one time. So both tuk tuk drivers and passengers should follow his advice.
