BANGLAMUNG – September 22, 2012[Pattaya Daily News]: at 6 p.m., a report of an armed robbery of a housewife was received by Pol. Col. Nitipoom Pootwong and the detective officers at Banglamung police station, sub-branch Nongprue, Chonburi.

Police rushed to the scene of the incident at house number 29/16 , Freeway Villa village, Marbprachan Horseshoe Point road, moo 9, Pong, Banglamung.

Police arrived at a single-story luxury house with a private pool, encompassing an area of approximately 100 square meters. Waiting for the police was the victim, Mrs. Suzette Lage, age 55, nationality Portuguese. She was crying and still in shock while giving her testimony.

Mrs. Suzette told police that she had been living in the house alone, since her husband had gone back to their home town to run the restaurant business.

She was cleaning up some trash left outside the house, and suddenly two teenage boys in an old white sedan parked close to her house. Both were wearing jeans, and one boy was wearing a green shirt, while the other boy was wearing gray-striped shirt.

But she was not suspicious, and just went back into her house to go to the toilet. Then the two teens climbed up the back wall, and opened her home’s sliding glass windows that she had not locked. The intruders then took out guns to point at Mrs. Suzette. They threatened her not to make a noise, otherwise they would kill her. Because of fear, she did not dare to disobey.

 

The criminals led Mrs. Suzette out of the toilet and made her point out where her valuables were. They then used a belt to tie her arms crossed behind her back, and used her husband’s long-sleeve shirt to tie her mouth.

Then the robbers took her valuables, including a diamond Rolex worth more than 400,000 baht; a K gold ornament with a pendant worth 10,000 baht; and a Bangkok Bank ATM card for her account that had more than 1.5 million baht cash in it. However, when they asked her for the card’s PIN code, Mrs. Suzette made up random numbers to satisfy them and avoid being killed. The two robbers then escaped.

Mrs. Suzette tried to free herself from her restraints, then went outside for help by telling neighbors what happened and to call the police. After her testimony, police captain Nitipoom broadcasted a description of the robbers on the police radio to alert officers in the area.

Later, a witness reported seeing two suspects dressed like the criminals at the ATM machines in Naklua. They had tried to withdraw cash from the ATMs, but could not get any money, then they drove away fast. Police will question more witnesses, and check nearby CCTVs to use as evidence to follow up to arrest the criminals.
