There is a saying “You have to take risks”, because in the past, most thieves were poor, unemployed, and in debt.
However, a new heist took place in the city of San Diego, California, USA, which surprised many with not only the dramatic theft process like the film but also the identity of the thief.
The theft took place in Newport – a port known for its serenity.
According to information from the Daily Mail, the incident occurred around 9:30 a.m. on Thursday, March 10 in Newport Harbor on a very peaceful morning.
A yacht is under maintenance and the key is still in the lock. The maintenance worker had a job, so he was absent for a while, then in an instant, it was stolen by a thief.
However, the thief had just piloted a nearly 20 meter long yacht not long before he hit another yacht parked in this harbor repeatedly.
Just stole a yacht, the thief drove it and caused an accident.
Debora Dolly, who was in her friend’s boat, was injured in this accident.
“The entire starboard side of the yacht hit me and it didn’t stop. It hit me about three times so the boat, mast, steel frame all hit me,” Debora told reporters, the Los Angeles CBD news agency.

It is learned that Mrs Dolly suffered a head injury and “couldn’t see very well” after being injured and taken to hospital.
However, after causing the first collision, the cruise ship continued to retreat, went to another area of Newport Harbor and turned around and then hit another ship. After this second stab, the thief lost control and crashed into a wall, ending the “tour” near the Lido Island Bridge.
The yacht was stolen, the thief could not escape, he had to pay the price, his identity was shocking.
“He damaged a number of ships along the way. It looks like they all sank,” another eyewitness, Kai McCartney, told CBS Los Angeles.
Finally, the cruise ship hit a wall and stopped.
Mr Kai said the impact was so strong that “everyone ran out of the house to see what was happening”.
The culprit was Joel Praneet Siam, 38, a CEO in San Diego.
Eventually the culprit was also caught and his identity shocked many. According to police information, his name is Joel Praneet Siam, 38, a CEO in San Diego.

Witness Denise Schaefer described Siam as “losing her mind” when she stole the yacht, although police have not confirmed whether she was on drugs at the time.
However, the owner of the stolen ship said that half the bottle of tequila on board had been lost.
“Thefts that cause this kind of damage are fairly rare,” Police Captain Ryan Anderson told the Los Angeles Times.
It is learned that Siam has paid $3 million bail and is waiting for a date to appear in court, which is expected to be March 14.
