PHUKET – January 8,2013; The reward was announced at a press conference called by police last night (January 7), at which police described the robber as being between 165 and 170 cm tall and aged 25 to 35 years old. The helmet he was wearing for the robbery has a design on the side of it (see picture).

A teller at the bank said she saw the man come in wearing his helmet. She asked him to take it off but instead he walked to one of the counters and pulled out a gun, demanding whatever money was available, before walking out with his loot.

Phuket Police Commander Maj Gen Choti Chavalviwat said, “Many police officers are tracking the robber. We found that he dropped the brown jacket he was wearing for the robbery in a bin about 250 metres from the bank. From that we believe we know his getaway route – along Soi Jai Rak Utit 2 and then along Soi Thepanusorn 5.

“The last CCTV image we have is of him about 300 metres from the camera. But there are no cameras on Soi Thepanusorn 5. The whole of Phuket has only 242 cameras [controlled by the police] which is not enough.

“We have therefore presented to Governer Maitree Intusut a project to install 2,400 cameras, as the first of five security projects for Phuket. We hope we will know the answer to that very soon.”
