A Bangkok Bank branch in the capital’s Thung Khru district was robbed on Wednesday afternoon (January 22), the lone perpetrator wielding a pistol snatched from a security guard.

 

Thung Khru police got the call at about 2pm and were soon at the bank inside a Tesco Lotus on Soi Pracha Uthit 58.

 

The security guard said the robber used his .38 pistol while ordering tellers to hand over an as-yet-unverified amount of cash, and then fled on a black Yamaha Fino motorcycle with no licence plate.

 

Witnesses described the suspect as 155-160 centimetres tall, slim and wearing a dark jacket, jeans and sneakers, black gloves, a purple motorcycle helmet and a blue backpack.

Why dont they instruct the mall security to stop anyone wearing helmets from entering the premises. Easy to implement, and could prevent a lot of these instances.

 

 

Oh easy....it's not polite

Maybe they should ask the assistance from Pattaya police, they can crack a robbery in 15 minutes !

We will see a lot more of this in Thailand. Hyperinflation; factory mass terminations; and a sanctimonious self serving government.

And by the sound of these posters above other countries do not have thefts.

The chances of getting away with it are very remote in Thailand wheras for example in Oz

the last 9 bank robbers 7 unsolved 

Sadly, a sign of the times everywhere
