"Polite" robber with a note steals 300,000 baht from Chonburi gold shop

A robber was described as polite in the Thai media after he apologized for holding up a gold shop in Chonburi. 

 

He even requested that he could make his getaway before the police were called.

 

But a chilling note and the use of a gun left staff and the owner of the Yaowarat branch at Nong Chak market in shock. 

 

The man wearing a white Nike cap and surgical mask walked into the shop and handed over a note in Thai that said:

 

"Don't make a noise. Put the gold and cash in the bag. The gold belongs to the shop. Your life is yours. There is no need to get killed". 

 

He was holding a gun and staff complied by putting 14 baht weight (about 300,000 baht's worth) of gold jewelry in a plastic bag. 

 

Before he left the shop he said: "I'm sorry but I need to do this. Let me get away before you call the police". 

 

Ban Bung police are investigating after the robbery yesterday evening.

Seems that there are plenty of gold shop robberies at the moment, saw one on the news just before I came out for my usual Thursday bevvie, a guy wearing a Thai post uniform and driving a Thai post van robbed a gold shop somewhere, I don't think it will be too long before he is nabbed

I thought the owner could remotely lock the door, and then get into a secure back room and wait for the police? These gold shops have a lot of stock on show and are easy targets.

If he's typically stupid, he'll go down the road to the next gold shop and try to sell it.
