Police hunt ‘farang’ donation box robber

PHUKET: Police are hunting for a ‘farang-looking’ man who stole 1,400 baht from a donation box outside a mosque in Kamala.

The thief was captured on CCTV using tools to break into the metal and glass box attached to a wall at the Boot Ror mosque on Thursday night.

Lt Sophon Borirak of the Kamala Police said the thief appears to be a westerner, aged 30 to 35 years, and about 160-170cm tall.

“He was wearing a long-sleeved shirt and long pants. His face was covered by a baseball cap but he looked like a farang,” said Col Sophon.

“After he took out the money, he used his clothes to wipe off his finger prints.”

Police said that the thief fit the description of a man who stole money from a donation box in Patong on Monday.
