PHUKET: A jobless man who robbed a 7-Eleven convenience store on the eastern outskirts of Phuket Town last Friday (Oct 8th) surrendered himself to police today (Oct 9) and now awaits prosecution. According to the suspect, he commited the crime because of financial problems caused by the COVID-19 pandemic.


Police were called to a 7-Eleven convenience store on Khan Kheha Rd in Rassada at around 11pm last night (Oct 8). The report was of a robbery.


At the scene, patrol officers led by Lt Col Sathit Nurit of the Phuket City Police found two female shop assistants in a state of shock. The shop counter was in disorder with things scattered around the place. Yet, neither of the women suffered any injuries.

So if all those that were affected by the Covid situation will use this excuse to go commit crimes, where will it leave the rest of us? no excuses... the man is a criminal and should be treated as such...

So did he do it for the money or to be caught and sent to jail where he'll be fed & watered?
