CHIANG MAI – A woman who accompanied a doctor to a hotel room, then drugged him with a substance daubed on her breast and stole his money and car has committed similar crimes before in other towns, police said on Thursday.

Police have obtained a fresh arrest warrant for the suspect, Kritaya Jomnoppakun, 26, for robbery.

The victim, identified only as a doctor, told police that he was lured to a hotel room by a woman he met in a nightclub. There she drugged him with an anaesthetic painted on her breast, reports said. After he passed out, the woman robbed him and stole his car.

Police identified the suspect from hotel’s security cameras, which caught her arriving with the victim and leaving alone 15 minutes later.

Police have tracked down the stolen car, which suspect had left at her friend’s home, who is also facing a criminal charge for abetting in the robbery.

Ms Kritiya is already wanted for other similar crimes and several arrest warrants have been issued — in Bangkok, Tak and her home town in Chantaburi province. Police said they will post her picture in hotels, nightclubs and other entertainment venues in Chiang Mai.

The anesthetic is likely to be a Chinese made drug which has been used in several rape crimes recently, police said. -BangkokPost
