  • Gold robber kills staff, shoppers, young child

    Police are hunting a gold-shop robber who killed three people, including a young boy, and wounded four others in the Robinson department store complex in Lop Buri on Thursday night.

    The man robbed the Aurora gold shop inside the mall about 8.44pm.
    He was wearing a woollen balaclava, black shirt and camouflage trousers, and carrying a handgun with a long sound suppressor attached to it.

    As he approached he fired at shop staff and customers, then jumped across the counter and snatched three trays of gold necklaces worth about 500,000 baht. As he left he shot a security guard dead before fleeing on a red-white Yamaha Fino motorcycle without a licence plate.

    Three people died of their bullet wounds, including a two-year old boy shot in the head while walking past the gold shop with his mother. The boy succumbed to the wound at a local hospital.

    Police said the man used a 9mm pistol. Security camera footage showed that the robber arrived at the store alone.

    "I wonder what state his mind was in. A woman died. A child died. You wanted gold. But why must people be killed? I cannot imagine such a cruel mind. I ask people to help find him... It was appalling," police commissioner Pol Lt Gen Amphol said.

    Senior officers were handling the case and armed police commandos were being used in the hunt, he said. They would do their very best to catch him.

    Unbelievable!
    I hope they'll catch him or he'll do it again, now this Jason Bourne wannabe experienced the adrenaline rush.

    Probably a Burmese though, no Thai would ever...

      There’s a 500,000 baht reward on offer.

      This kind of crime is rare here, which is why shopping malls don’t have armed guards.

            Investigators are targeting a former military officer as they hunt the robber who killed three people and wounded four others during a gold shop heist last Thursday, according to a high-ranking police source.

            The source, who asked not to be named, said national police chief Chakthip Chaijinda flew to Lop Buri on Sunday evening to hold an urgent meeting with the investigating team.

            Another source said police are looking for a man aged 35-40 and 165-168cm tall, who has been well trained in using guns.

                    • Suspect in Lopburi gold heist case arrested


                    The suspect in the Lopburi gold heist case, who also allegedly killed three people on January 9, was arrested on Wednesday (January 22), police reports said.

                    National Police chief Pol General Chakthip Chaijinda will later provide further information.

                    On Wednesday morning, the forensic team was preparing evidence to issue an arrest warrant. They used DNA from sweat at the scene to identify the suspect.

                    The report identified the suspect, Prasittichai Khaokaew, as a firearms coach and director of Wat Pho Chai School in Singburi province. He has reportedly confessed to the crimes and his motive is being investigated.

                    Thai netizens have shared a picture of the suspect celebrating Children’s Day on his Facebook account two days after allegedly murdering three people, including a two-year-old boy.: https://www.nationthailand.com/news/...ernal_referral

                      That’s good news, though up until last night the police were saying he’d left the country. Wonder how they found out it was him.

                              Just rumor with last night’s news.

                              The killer/thief told the police he tossed the stolen gold in the river. Divers looked for about 6 hours and couldn’t find it. Killer’s wife tells police she believes the gold is in the carport. Police find gold in carport.

                              There was a 600,000 baht reward (I think it was 600,000) to the person who was able to identify the killer/thief. Might have been his wife.
