According to an investigation, the woman was the same person who tried to snatch a necklace from a resident just a couple of hours before the shop robbery.

She failed to snatch the ornament before robbing the gold shop, about 6 km away from the first scene at Eua Arthon housing estate in Bang Chalong of Bang Phli district.

Pol Maj Gen Panlop Araemlar, commander of Samut Prakan police, has ordered officers to launch an intense search operation to hunt down the robber.
