Restaurant Thief Janeen Thomas Arrested Again, Twice In Two Days

Then, one day later, Thomas was arrested at Pattaya Thai, the restaurant on the 4000 block of Chestnut Street.

    Janeen Thomas Arrested Yet Again
    The sad saga continues. We were really pulling for her. We really were. But Janeen Thomas has been arrested yet again for alleged misdeeds inside a Philadelphia restaurant. If her name sounds familiar to you, it's because Thomas became locally infamous thanks to a string of thefts and other bad behavior inside local eateries in 2015.
