Daily News reported that a lone armed robber came off the street out of torrential rain and robbed the Bank of Agriculture and Agricultural Cooperatives, Chalerm Prakiat branch, in Prawet district of south eastern Bangkok yesterday.

 

The man in a sky blue, cap, face mask, black shirt, jeans and trainers went up to Counter #1 and told a staff member to get on the floor. 

 

He was brandishing a gun.

 

He then helped himself to 106,000 baht before disappearing on a Honda Click motorcycle. 

 

The incident happened just a little way down Chalerm Prakiat Soi 13.

Yes. It's time for 3-4 heavily armed guards at all bank branches country wide, then gold shops, supermarkets and 7-eleven. We haven't seen anything yet.

Expats and the few remaining tourists here, leave all valuables at home.

It is therefore high time that the government throws money helicopter out the window.

I don't think it will ever happen in Thailand;

there is generally a "guard" in uniform who is mainly there to open the door for us by making a vague military salute.
and then it would cost too much to the banks and the police would especially not want private guards to do their non-work by showing the population how bad it (the police) is useless.

If you in Pattaya now, take a extra look inside Big C Extra, 2nd floor near the bank branches. Plain clothes security men added since 2 weeks ago
