In a bizarre incident, a thief in Thailand managed to steal jewellery from a store but was unable to get away with it because of the store owner's presence of mind.

27-year-old Suphachai Panthong casually walked into a jewellery store in Choburi and asked to be showed a necklace worth £500. He tried it on and for some time, pretended to be admiring the goods before making a run for it.

However, according to a report in Daily Mail, his plan got foiled after the shopkeeper, who had grown suspicious, locked the main entrance. When the thief was unable to exit the store, he had to return the necklace to the shopkeeper.

CCTV footage released by Thai police show the man hilariously walking back to the counter, then taking off the necklace and handing it back to the keeper.

The video has been shared widely on social media. After the unsuccessful robbery, police apprehended the thief and he confessed.
