Police: Mongolian citizen helped South Korean thief to steal golden Buddhas from homes of Mongolia’s famous and rich

Mongolian police said a Mongolian citizen Kh…who lived and worked in South Korea illegally for 7-8 years met with Pak, the South Korean thief. It appears that Pak is a very experienced thief who knows how to disable alarm security system and CCTV surveillance of homes and burglary.

Pak allegedly confessed he came to Mongolia to steal golden Buddha statues dating 1800s and didn’t worry about leaving his finger prints in the homes he entered to steal as he thought Mongolian police don’t have his fingerprints.

It appears Kh provided information about rich and famous of Mongolia who have Golden Buddha statues and traditional snuffing box and other precious relics to Pak and he came to Mongolia. Notes with list of Mongolia’s rich were found during arrest of Kh and Pak.

The police report said the duo began to enter and steal from homes of the rich and famous from December last year up to Jan 8, 2017 coinciding with New Year festivities in Mongolia where people usually attend parties and celebrations in evenings.

The duo were arrested after stealing more than 1 billion Tugrug (400 thousand US dollars) worth golden Buddha statues, snuffing boxes and other relics from 5,6 family houses belonging to Mongolia’s rich and famous including former lawmaker Gundalai and Chinbat, gold magnate and other businessmen in closed-gated communities of Nukht and Zaisan areas of Ulaanbaatar.

Park confessed he shipped some of the stolen items to South Korea by cargo.
