Hunt for Armed Bank Robber in Prachuap Khiri Khan Continues

The suspect failed at getting any money in the heist.

The search for the suspect of a failed armed robbery at the Bank for Agriculture and Agricultural Cooperatives in Prachuap Khiri Khan continues.

The armed bank robbery didn’t go as planned. The bank employees ran for safety after the culprit pulled out a firearm during the robbery. According to the report, the robber was unsuccessful in getting any money from the heist. Customers called police and the suspect fled the scene.

Investigators have brought in witnesses for questioning. According to the report, the suspect smelled of alcohol and was described as a “young Tom” who is the manager of a residential community in the area. But after comparing the CCTV footage to the suspect, the descriptions didn’t match and the young Tom was released.

Investigators believe the culprit is not from the area due to lack of knowledge of the local roads and the way she escaped. The culprit drove a motorbike about 2 kilometers from the bank and left it there after the failed robbery.

My take: Watch that video. It’s just about the most pathetic attempt at an armed robbery I’ve ever seen. I’m glad nobody was hurt but the culprit obviously didn’t think this one through.
