54-year-old American man arrested for shoplifting in Chang Klan

A 54-year-old American man has been arrested after allegedly shoplifting items from a convenience store in Chang Klan.

The incident is said to have occurred at a store (likely 7-Eleven – it’s the only one there) on Khotchasan Road in the southeast corner of moat either late March 6 or early morning March 7.

Mr. Gregory Paul Burke allegedly attempted to shoplift two large bags of instant coffee, one unspecified snack and “sucrose” by stuffing the items down his shirt and pants.

Suffice it to say, he was spotted by staff attempting to leave the store without paying and was intercepted and held until police arrived.

He was also found to be carrying a knife.

He has been charged with burglary and detained in custody pending a court hearing.
