'Saddened' by the sight of an empty house, man decides to occupy it


A 29-year-old man has been arrested for sneaking and living illegally in an unoccupied house in Songkhla province.

A woman, whose name was not disclosed, told police there was evidence of a man living in her new house located in Songkhla’s Sadao district. The house and the furniture were purchased at the end of 2019, she said.
On May 17, the house owner and her grandmother came to the house for cleaning and found evidence of habitation, such as dirty plates and urine stains on the bed. The house was locked again after the cleaning, she added.

On Tuesday (June 9), a village official called the owner to inform her that a stranger was found living in her house. This man rode to her house many times, and his suspected actions were recorded in a video.
The house owner then took the video to report to the local police, asking them to check her house.
