PHUKET TOWN: Police believe they now know the identities of the two men involved in the recent Supercheap murder-robbery, but are compiling more forensic and witness evidence before they can move to arrest them. Pol Col Chalit Thintanee, superintendent of Phuket Town Police Station told the Gazette that he and his men are currently awaiting the results of forensic tests being conducted in Bangkok on bullets recovered from the crime scene, and on a pistol found nearby. The lab’s findings are expected in about two weeks. He added that the two suspects are thought to have left Phuket province. Supercheap employee Jennarong Utoksaenee was shot dead in broad daylight near the warehouse store on Thepkrasattri Rd by the passenger of a motorcycle which drew alongside his car as he was taking 1.7 million baht to the bank. The two gangsters made off with the money.
