Pattaya —

  Pattaya police have increased the bounty on a gold shop robber, who is still on the run, to 100,000 baht from 50,000.

Our previous story:

A gun-wielding robber robbed a Pattaya gold shop and swept around one million baht worth of gold jewelry before fleeing.

Now for our update:

The suspect swept a large number of gold necklaces worth one million baht in total from the Aurora gold shop on November 9th at 8 PM, according to Pattaya police.

The suspect still cannot be identified as of press time, but he has dark skin, stands about 170 cm tall, and rides a black Honda Wave 125i motorbike without side mirrors and a license plate.

Since the robber is still on the run, the police have doubled the bounty on him from 50,000 baht to 100,000 for any person who can provide useful information that leads to the suspect’s arrest.

Anyone who can help is encouraged to contact Pattaya police chief Pol. Col. Kunlachart Kunlachai at 090-9093248.
