Armed robbery at Siam Commercial Bank, Nong Hoi

Current high fuel prices and the economic recession in Chiang Mai would seem to be fuelling an increase in crime in the city. The latest manifestation of this trend occurred on March 12, when an armed robber shot the manager of a local branch of Siam Commercial Bank, and escaped with 200,000 baht, only to be arrested two days later whilst drinking beer in the restaurant area of the Carrefour/Home-Pro complex on the Superhighway.
At 3.30 pm on the day of the robbery, police were called to the Nong Hoi intersection branch of Siam Commercial Bank. On arrival, they found quantities of blood on the glass entrance door and the floor, together with a spent 9 mm cartridge.
The manager of the bank, Chakapong Wiyo, 42, who had been shot in the face by the robber, was immediately transferred to Rachawet Hospital’s intensive care unit.
