Police arrested 25 year old Rojana Chongklang at her house yesterday, about 36 hours after the robbery. She used to work at a 7-Eleven store in the Ban Pho community but was fired late last year after working there for ten years.

Officers found most of the missing cash hidden in a cesspool at her house in Ban Dan Khon Khob village, about 15 kilometres from the robbed shop. Police allege that she had already spent some of the cash and was planning to flee to South Korea.

Police say she planned the robbery due to a debt of several hundreds thousand baht.

Jor Hor police are still interrogating 12 of the shop’s staff, one at a time, to check for possible clues that the alleged robber was helped by insiders, given how easy it was for her to leave with a large haul of cash from the safe box.

The robbery took place in the early hours of Monday morning. The store manager said that the safe contained a lot of money from weekend sales, and would have been sent to the bank during office hours on Monday. Earlier, it was reported that the robber was a man in a full-size crash helmet and carrying a long knife.
