Bangkok – American arrested for bank robbery

1

Via: Pattaya 103

Lloyd Dennis Hall, a 62 year old English teacher,  was traced to his apartment yesterday by detectives investigating the robbery which took place in a branch of the Bangkok Bank in a Tesco Lotus Mall during which the robbers passed a note to tellers, written in English and demanding cash.  In the note he also claimed to be armed with both a gun and a knife

Police searching Hall’s apartment found over 350,000 baht ($11,700 USD) , much of it still with Bank wrappers..  A detailed search also revealed a discarded crash helmet and shirt, similar in appearance to those used in the raid.  The bike, suspected as that  used in the getaway, was also found close by and Hall was removed to the local police station for questioning.

After several hours, during which he repeatedly denied any involvement in the robbery, Hall admitted the charges as the evidence was presented to him.

He is expected to be held in Prison until a trial date as this was a crime involving violence and he may be considered a flight risk.

After his conviction, he’ll no doubt spent his final days at the ‘Bangkok Hilton’ (see photo).

Brilliant move, Lloyd!

  3. Don’t farangs know that it is very difficult for farang to rob banks in thailand? Farangs on average tall ( taller than average thai) and thais are very observant of farangs they watch your farang every move, from the moment you step out of your condo or house they notice you. Not that they busybody just that you stand out like a sore thumb so to speak. And thai don’t hesitate to report a farang because farang don’t have gangs to back them up ( like coming to your house to shoot you because you talk to police). Farang should cheat the bank not rob them with guns or knives. Not a good move.
