PHUKET: -- Police are looking for a foreigner who drugged the receptionist at the Karon Place Hotel, Phuket, on Monday (January 14) and then robbed the safety deposit boxes behind the counter.

The belongings of 21 hotel guests, believed to worth as much as B3 million, were stolen. The thief also took away the recording from the hotel’s CCTV camera.

Superintendent of Investigations, Pol Col Wanchai Palawan told The Phuket News, “The robber gave coffee to the receptionist who felt drowsy and then fell asleep.”

When he woke up he found all the safety boxes had been opened and their contents stolen.

The Deputy Commander of Phuket Town Police, Col Arun Keawwati said, “Hotel guests who left their belongings in the safety boxes have lost passports, cash in a variety of currencies, cameras and mobile phones.”

Col Arun said the robber was “Middle East looking” with fair skin. He added that police believe the robbery may be the work of a gang. “There was a similar robbery in Samui,” he explained.
