Phuket –

Two suspects are on the run after they robbed a convenience store at gun-point in the Thalang district.

The Thalang Police were notified of the incident at a convenience store in the Paklok sub-district earlier this week.

The Thalang Police told the Phuket Express that CCTV footage shows that at 4:20 A.M. two suspects wearing full helmets stopped in front of the store. One suspect used a handmade pistol and pointed it at two female staff. The staff gave the suspects 1,826 baht.

The Thalang Police are hunting for the suspects and noted that the convenience store was open for its final day when they were robbed. The store will be re-opened and relocated in another area.
