A witness is reported to have seen a foreign man who it was strongly suspected was also involved as he had been loitering suspiciously around the incident and was seen jumping into the suspect’s truck while they were driving away.

At 7.00 pm., on 28 December, Police Colonel Somnuek Junket, Banglamung Police Superintendent, received a report that there had been a robbery at the ATM in the PTT petrol station, located on Sukhumvit Road, Pattaya, opposite to the Lotus Superstore. He then passed on the report to his commander, the Chonburi Police Commandant, before detailing a response team to immediately investigate the robbery.

At the PTT Petrol station, next to the Jiff Minimart, the two robbery victims, Mr. Anurak Ringgit [35] , from Bangkuan, Chacherngsao and Mr. Niroot Bauban [26] from Manorom, Chainat were waiting for police, looking distinctly frightened, near the green-and white Nissan truck. Mr. Anurak told the police that he and Mr. Niroot, the driver, were responsible for driving throughout Pattaya making deliveries. The truck carrying Bt100 million was tasked to deliver Bt5 million each to many of the Siam Commercial Bank’s ATMs. Their previous delivery had been the ATM on Thepprasit Road, before heading to the one where the incident occurred, their eleventh drop, after which they would normally carry on to the Huay Yai Branch.

Mr. Anurak said he and Mr. Niroot were walking together to the back of the ATM machine and he was carrying a dark green cash bag with Bt5 million inside. He said he was opening the back slot of the machine and was about to take the money safe out, when two Thai men, aged around 30, whose faces were covered by black knitted woollen hats and both wearing gloves started approaching him. One man carried a knife, and the other a gun. The suspects threatened him and the driver to keep quiet and the one with a knife pulled the money bag from him, both robbers then ran to a white Toyota truck, with no number plate, which was parked waiting, and sped away in the direction of Sattahip.

After listening to the details, police officers sent an urgent radio message to all police patrols and every police station and all officials concerned to try to catch the robbers. Police questioned the two delivery men at length and tried to collect as much evidence from around the incident area as possible. A lottery man, who was an eye witness, said he saw a foreign man, who appeared to belong to the group, too. The foreigner had apparently been keeping watch, while the other two approached the victims. He also said that he saw the foreigner jump into the truck with the Thai men before they all left the scene.

Police Colonel Somnuek Junket expressed his outrage at the robbery, also saying that he believed the robbery had been well prepared. Further information, resulting from the police questioning of Mr. Anurak, revealed that one of the suspects distinctly resembled a former company employee who had been suspended from his job because some money had gone missing while he was on duty. This individual had been in the habit of threatening Mr. Anurak. Mr. Anurak also said that the robber’s accomplice was of a very similar stature and build to one of the suspect’s friends, whom he knew. Police duly took note of this information. Police Colonel Somnuek, in closing, said his team would make the capture of the robbers their first priority and was confident of a swift arrest.
