Two men dressed up as Buddhist monks have used their disguise to steal a mobile phone.
The pair walked into a rice shop in southern Thailand decked out in their orange robes and asked to speak to the owner.
It is common for religious men to visit homes and businesses seeking donations, so their request was not out of the ordinary.
A shopworker went to find owner Orati Kongmum, who was upstairs getting the air conditioning repaired.
But when she returned with Miss Kongmum, the men had gone and so had her mobile phone.
