Man Who Dined And Dashed With Paying “Jay Fai” Apprehended


A man posing as an undercover plain clothes policeman has allegedly scammed “Jay Fai” Bangkok’s Michelin-starred street food vendor, doing a dine and dash, authorities said on Friday.

The Michelin star chef stated on her Instagram account, @jayfaibangkok, that she was looking for a man claiming to be a police officer with urgent business. He cut in line, finished his lunch, and then fled without paying his 2,310-baht bill on Thursday afternoon.

Supinya “Jay Fai” Junsuta, aged 78, later filed a complaint with the Samran Rat Police Station.

Police arrested the man on Friday after reviewing security video from the neighborhood. He was questioned before being led to the restaurant, where he apologized to Jay Fai.

He stated that he did not intend to skip the bill. He simply forgot to pay because he was in a rush to retrieve his car from a garage where it was being maintained. According to police the individual was not an inspector, but a retired local authority officer who claimed to have memory problems.

Jay Fai did not file charges. She stated that in the future, she will guarantee that her team is more diligent in collecting payments.

The police did, however, say they would look into the report of the man impersonating a police officer. They reported dining at a restaurant without paying is considered stealing under Section 345 of the Criminal Code, punishable by a fine of up to 5,000 baht and/or three months in jail.
