5 armed gunmen get off with 10 million baht from Pattaya mansion

Who sits around with 10 million baht?

When: September 7th, 2020

Where: Pattaya, Bang Lamung district, Siam Royal View housing estate

Perpetrator: 5 masked gunman, unknown

Victims: Chinese nationals, unknown

What: 5 masked gunman ransacked a Pattaya mansion and got off with 10 million baht in cash and valuables.

The story raises some serious questions: Who keeps 10 million baht in cash laying around? Are these Chinese tourists, as the police claim? How did the gunmen know that the house was loaded?

Something’s fishy down in Pattaya and these Chinese tourists net-worth is suddenly a whole lot lighter.

My take: This was either an inside job or somebody had it out for these Chinese. Let’s see what the CCTV turns up. My guess is a whole lot of nothing.
