A policeman and a suspected thief were killed in a gunfight that erupted after three men robbed a Krungthai Bank branch at Klong Ngae in Songkhla's Sadao district yesterday.
The robbers shot and killed Pol Sub-Lieutenant Wanchat Chaipan before making off with an unspecified amount of cash. Police later caught up with the gang in tambon Khao Mee Kiat, which led to a gunfight, during which one of the suspects was killed.
This is the second time this bank has been robbed. The first time was in May last year, when a man got away with Bt150,000 in cash. Nobody has been arrested for the first robbery yet.
