A woman accused of taking off with dowries after marrying at least seven men has been detained for an old petty offence, but it remains unclear what charges she might face in the high-profile case.

Police on Saturday took Jariyaporn Buayai, 32, to the Thanyaburi Court in Pathum Thani to seek the first detention on a charge of stealing an air-conditioner from a resort room there in 2013.

Criminal suspects can be detained for up to seven 12-day periods, or 84 days, before charges must be formally laid.
