British and Korean males arrested for robbing cannabis shop in Pattaya

Officers from Mueng Pattaya Police Station arrested a British and Korean man yesterday after they stole one hundred seventy five,000 baht from a cannabis shop in Pattaya on Saturday. Another suspect, an Irishman, is being questioned by police under suspicion of being concerned in the theft.
The two thieves were identified as 47 yr previous Englishman Markus Powell and fifty two year outdated Korean Myoung Kyu Lee. The arrest followed a criticism made by the owner of the cannabis store on Pattaya Sai Sam Road, THC Trade Herbs & Cannabis, on Saturday, March 25.
The store proprietor, forty four 12 months previous Parin Parnsing, reported that his Korean co-owner, Namil Kim, was attacked by the thieves while he was working in an workplace behind the store at about 11.20pm. The two overseas males broke into the office and attacked Kim, though no weapons were used.
The thieves then stole Kim’s pockets which contained 5,000 baht cash and a security box with roughly a hundred and seventy,000 baht cash earlier than fleeing the scene in a car.
Officers checked the security cameras of the shop until they might establish and arrested the thieves yesterday. There can also be suspicion that a fifty two year previous Irishman may have been involved in the theft. However, the police do not have concrete evidence and are presently questioning him additional.
The Korean victim, Namil Kim, seems to have had a run of bad luck. Last month he was shot within the leg by a neighborhood man at a grocery store near his hashish store. According to Surge , Kim gave the impression to be drunk and was making a nuisance of himself and the customer lost his temper in consequence. The man withdrew his gun and fired two shots, one hit the allegedly irritating Korean within the leg while the second shot hit a passing motorcyclist within the leg.
This was the second taking pictures in Pattaya in two months.
In January, the nephew of a former deputy mayor of Pattaya shot a British man in a street rage incident.
The 32 12 months old man, recognized solely by his first name Apichat, shot 71 yr outdated Neil Roger after the motorcyclist honked his horn at him.
Roger, a British engineer, died on account of the capturing.
Apichat later surrendered to the police..
