Last night, a woman was arrested on suspicion of stealing stadium seats and other merchandise linked to last week’s football match between Manchester United and Liverpool.
Kinika Ratanantchai, 34, was arrested in a commercial building in Bangkok’s Thong Khro district after officers said she had discovered several red seats from the Bangkok Century Cup match a week earlier at Rajamangala Stadium.
Retrieved items included four players’ seats, 13 folding spectator chairs, 100 seat covers, and a poster to unlock the Jackson Wang scene.
The four padded players’ seats were found cut with a knife. It was said to be worth 413,000 baht because the match organizer, the Fresh Air Festival, planned to sell them for 100,000 baht each in an effort to recover costs.
Police said Keneka told them she had a burglary.
Some missing items were discovered on Friday, three days after Liverpool’s 4-0 win over Manchester United.
CCTV footage showed a man and a woman pulling things away. Police managed to track down the van used in the alleged robbery, and arrested the unidentified man.
He told them he was working for a private transport company hired by Kenika to move things from the stadium to an apartment complex in Ekkamai.
