A video and stills from a security camera showing two men walking off with one of two carved elephants outside the Happy Chang Noi Restaurant on Koh Samui were posted the Facebook account of Sasothon Somvung, the restaurant’s owner, on Monday and Tuesday.
The theft occurred in the early hours of Monday, after the restaurant had closed. When staff arrived for work, they discovered one of the wooden elephant was missing. A check of the footage from a security camera outside the premises showed what happened.
Two foreign men were seen arriving in front of the restaurant around 2 am. They tried to lift both the elephants. One is heavier than the other. The duo took the smaller one, the restaurant owner posted on his Facebook.
He said his staff had filed a complaint with Bo Phud police on Koh Samui and he asked Facebook friends to help share the images.
