Chiang Mai – 19 Year-Old Man Arrested for Robbing Three Seven Elevens and LPG Gas Stations

Via: City News – Chiang Mai

Police said that after they received reports in October that different 7-11s had been robbed they started an investigation. On 23rd October, around 1 a.m. they picked the accused up at an internet café near Rajabhat Chiang Mai University. He confessed that on 7th October he robbed the Seven Eleven, Ban Seesan branch at 2.40 a.m. On 13th the Sri Ping Muang branch at 4.54 a.m. On 19th October the Sri Bau Nguen branch at 2.40 a.m. and on 18th October an LPG gas station, Mahidol Road branch at 1.40 a.m.

Banharn always used a BB gun and always wore a crash helmet during robberies. When he arrived at the shops he threatened staff with the gun and demanded they open the cash drawer.

He told police he spent the money he stole to play games at internet cafés and buy some belongings (my guess is yaba – metanphetamines – scary shit!).

Police also found that there was a warrant out for this arrest for stealing that had been issued by Sansai Police Station in 2010.
