Police are hunting for a middle-eastern man who was caught on CCTV entering a “Staff Only” area of a 24 hour convenience store who then allegedly stole 6,000 baht from a bag belonging to a staff member.

Police were called to a 7-Eleven Convenience Store, branch number 7949, situated at the front of Soi 15 on Walking Street, South Pattaya, just before 3am on Thursday to investigate the alleged theft of money.

Khun Maroot aged 20, who works in the store, told Police that the man was caught leaving the “Staff Only” area and when challenged he claimed he had gone to use the toilet. He then angrily left the shop after a brief confrontation with Khun Maroot.

Police checked security cameras and saw the man enter the restricted area when Khun Maroot was working elsewhere in the shop. After the middle-eastern man left the shop Khun Maroot checked his bag and found that 6,000 Baht in cash had been taken and he suspected the middle-eastern man may be responsible.

Police are now searching for the suspect who remains at-large for now.

    6,000 baht… That is equiv to a months salary in the employees bag? Little hard to believe, and think he is using the Middle-eastern man as a fall guy for a fake theft.

    We would probably be wise, and not ask Khun Maroot how that cash was earned.
