Thai boy steals cash from drawer


There are many good advantages of a security camera. One such example is that it helps monitor our premises when we’re not around.

However, installing the security camera at the right location will also help us to identify who the culprit is exactly, and perhaps deter others from committing any crimes.

Here’s the hilarious story of a boy in Thailand who was caught stealing cash from a drawer, but retuned it upon spotting a CCTV.

The CCTV footage showed a young man in red pajamas walking happily into what was said to be his mother’s store.

Just a moment later, he made a beeline to a cashier’s counter and looked both ways to check if there was someone around there before opening the drawer.

From his obvious actions, it’s very easy for us to guess what he intended to do next.

After that, he contritely performed a wai by pressing his hands together, before bowing down in an apology directed at the camera.

While many netizens speculated that the boy followed in his father’s footprints, one viewer pointed out that some of them had done the same when they were younger.


The security camera and the boy’s conscience saved the day


The story is quite a hilarious one, with the boy coming full circle and realising the error of his ways before making a mistake.

Let’s cheer the boy on as he continues to learn and grow, and of course, give due credit to the security camera for successfully deterring his theft. At least there’ll be peace when he gets home, for now.
