12th January 2011 [Pattaya Daily News]: At 9.20pm Police Lieutenant Chatchay Sisuwan , a police investigator at Pattaya Police Station, was notified about a theft from a car belonging to a female worker of the Wongsamat branch of SCB bank (Nagluea 18) at Pattaya-Nagluea, Moo5 Nagluea, Banglamung, Chonburi.

Police immediately rushed to the scene to find the victim, Ms. Chuthinan Phudet, 24, an SCB bank employee (residing at 109 Moo 10 Paansuk, Srayaphrathed, Sragaew) in shock and waiting beside her damaged car with her friends in support. On investigating the victims car, a Honda Jazz (license no.ษษ 1849 Bangkok ), police discovered the vehicle’s left rear door window had been smashed using a heavy object. Once access had been gained the thieves were able to remove valuables which included a computer notebook, a wallet containing 3,000 THB, and a gold necklace worth about 50,000 THB. Ms. Chuthinan stated she had parked her car in the car park at 8.30am that morning as usual. She returned to her car after finishing work around 9.00pm, to discover the break-in and theft of her valuables. Ms. Chuthinan described feeling overwhelmed by shock at the sight of her car, as she had never experienced anything like this before and initially she did not know what to do. She ran back to her friends and colleagues from the bank branch and the police were then immediately notified.

Police Lieutenant Krisakron Thonginn stated that it is assumed that the robbery was committed by a car robbing gang who target cars parked in various places by looking for valuables left in plain sight. Police believed there were at least 2 offenders and sent for inspectors to make a more detailed investigation of evidence, such as looking for finger prints in the car. Unfortunately no further evidence was found, which leads the police to think the theft was committed by a professional gang. Police will now view CCTV tapes from nearby locations to look for any clues, and will try to trace the gang of robbers in order to arrest and prosecute them according to the law.
