Maj Gen Pekad Tantipong ordered patrol units in all districts to be on the lookout for strange activity near gold shops, such as repeated passes by the same vehicle.
“People planning a crime of this sort study their target before taking action, so police need to notice this activity in order to prevent robberies,” he said.
“The price of gold keeps increasing, so gold shops have to set up measures to protect themselves as well. In the past we held meetings with shop owners to discuss protection strategies,” he added.
Provincial Police Region 8 Commissioner Kokiat Wongvoracha has provided strong support for the ongoing investigation, Maj Gen Pekad said.
