PHUKET: Police are continuing their hunt for the robber who beat a 71-year-old gold shop owner in Phuket Town with a piece of wood late Saturday night. Police have now confirmed that the gold stolen in the robbery was valued at about B8 million.


Investigators arrived at the scene yesterday afternoon (Oct 24) to inspect the area, behind the Thong Thaweechai gold shop on Ranong Rd.


The robber fled the gold shop through a side door and is believed to have escaped past an abandoned building with overgrown vegetation behind the gold shop, where owners Wangdee Inthawong, 71, and Puangpen Sakkasemkrit, 65, lived upstairs.
