November 8, 2010, [Pattaya Daily News]: The trio responsible for robbing Por Srisuwan gold shop were finally tracked down to Udon Thani. Police swooped on the home of one Woraphong Nonthachai [24], where the suspect confessed. He told police team leader, Pol.Col. Somnuk Janket, Banglamung Police Superintendent, at 10.30pm, Nov7, that he and two others, Messrs. Luechaingam and Kriengkrai Junlachat [21] also from Udon Thani, had conspired to rob Por Srisuwan gold shop.

Mr. Nonthachai confessed that he had driven the motorbike to the scene, with Mr. Junlachat riding pillion. Arriving at the gold shop, he had put his foot over the electric floor sensor and stood on watch at the front, while Mr. Junlachat held up the shopkeeper at gunpoint inside the shop. The pair had then escaped with a haul of 22 baht gold jewellery. Mr. Nonthachai added that the three offenders had subsequently shared the gold into three equal lots, before going their separate ways. His share, he said was 6 baht gold jewellery, which he wanted to use for expenses and to invest in a small business.

Mr. Nonthachai was then taken to re-enact the crime; first to an apartment in Soi Nernplubwan, the planning room, and subsequently to the Por Srisuwan gold shop itself.

Pol.Col. Janket told press that although was no evidence from the CCTV at the shop, a flower seller near the scene had provided crucial evidence, having remembered the motorbike’s registration number, as well as the offenders’ faces. The motorbike registration yielded the owner’s name, one Mr. Bunlium Luechaingam [35] from Roi Et, a motorbike taxi driver stationed in front of the spa in Rattanakorn Village, Pattaya 3rd Road, Central Pattaya. Subsequently Mr. Luechaingam had given himself up, but denied the accusation, claiming his next door neighbour had borrowed his motorbike on the day in question.

However, further investigation revealed stolen items in the possession of Messrs. Luechaingam and Nonthachai. It was also known that three offenders had planned the robbery together, riding the motorbike to scout out the scene for two days prior to the robbery. The hiding place of the other suspect, Mr. Junlachat, is known to police and they are confident of making an arrest imminently.
