Would be ATM robber said he needed money as his wife is about to give birth

An expectant father in Thailand's south is likely to miss the birth of his offspring. 

 

Kiatsak Chaibunkaew, 26, was disturbed by a shop owner last Saturday as he tried to use gas to penetrate an ATM near Petchkasem Road in Phattalung at around 4 am. 

 

He fled on his bike without getting and money. 

 

But police were soon on his case after they found the adapted motorcycle and tools in a couple of locations connected to the suspect. 

 

Under investigation - and unlike the ATM - he cracked. 

 

Kiatsak said he was in debt and his wife was just about to give birth.

 

Police took him on a reenactment yesterday and detained him on charges of attempted theft at night and criminal damage. 

 

Phattalung cops quoted by Thai Rath said that Kiatsak was not a professional thief but he had gone equipped to commit the crime. 

 

Kiatsak had claimed earlier it was a spur of the moment thing.

Thought that it was for free (30 baht), unless you want a private hospital.

I doubt he would even open it from front with that gas cutter.

He could always take her to a toilet in the local police station - no charge!

 

Desperation will be obliterated after the election.

I often rob a bank at the spur of the moment.
