OrBorJor office broken into

PHUKET: The Division of Finance at the Phuket Provincial Administration Organization (OrBorJor) building was broken into over the weekend.

Wannee Supradit, Director of the Division of Finance, told the Gazette that some OrBorJor officers work during weekends and that, on Sunday, she went to work earlier than usual because of a heavy workload.

She said she noticed nothing untoward until a fellow worker arrived and pointed out a smashed light bulb and an overflowing office wash basin.

“We immediately went to the safe and saw that the combination lock had been tampered with but there was no money missing,” she added.

It is not yet known what was stolen, but police suspect that the burglar or burglars may have been after documents rather than money, as many desks had been rifled.

“This time the thief didn’t get any money,” K. Wannee commented. “We’re going to be more careful in the future and keep any valuables in the safe.”

The OrBorJor has a security guard posted from 6 pm – 6 am every night but this apparently did not deter the miscreants.
