Karon bank robber evades police

KARON: Chalong police, still stumped after a farang bank robber made off with 420,000 baht last week, are appealing to owners of motorcycle rental companies in Karon to come forward with information of suspicious individuals who rented black, automatic motorcycles between June 26 and 28.

The perpetrator may have used a Suzuki Step, a Yamaha Mio or Nouvo, or a Honda Click, said Capt Thammasan Boonsong, who admitted his team was still no closer to finding the man who robbed a Siam Commercial Bank branch on Patak Rd.

Several individuals have been investigated and cleared, he added.

The robber is said to be Caucasian, with a short beard or stubble, and between 30 and 40 years old, according to witnesses who saw the man waiting outside the bank before the robbery.

Capt Thammasan urged anybody with information that may lead to the suspect’s arrest to call him at 081-6413007.
