My wife read the caption and confirms it does not say farang.

Could he be called a black farang or coloured farang?

No. She said 'foreigner' or European'. It can be used in both contexts apparently.

They did not explain exactly how the police managed to get an arrest warrant in the name of the suspect. 

Probably from the ATM records, it records the name relating to every card put in it.

Suddenly I feel confused about the definition of farang.. 🤔

Caption says ..............

Dtang chat hua rawn - Tup dtuu gawt ngern sot pang.

Hot headed foreigner - destroys cash machine. 

 

Nothing about European or farang in the caption.

Some of the comments are as pathetic as the conduct of the suspect. I can only guess that alcohol, drugs or mental illness are contributing factors in both camps.

How much damage could he do by punching or kicking it ,they drive end loaders and forklifts into them and still get nothing.

I do feel for the guy and the grief he is getting on here. On holiday forgetting your in a 3rd world country with 3rd world banking. Expecting same service he gets back in the UK was his first mistake. Frustration and maybe desperation resulted in him losing his temper "let he who hath not sinned cast the first stone". How much physical damage can you do to an atm by kicking or hitting it? Not much I would think. Its not as if he took a brick or hammer to it. Learn from your mistake and remember when you book your next holiday.....

Not rocket science, ATM card account has suspect’s name, quick check of TM30 database which hotel will have recorded him on, off the BiB go and nab him.

The good news: this guy can pay some money to make the problem go away. 

 

The bad news: the ATM isn't working.  🙄
