At 2:52am yesterday, Mr Teeranan Mukdee, Branch Manager of the Krung Thai Bank on Rath-U-Thit 200 Pi Rd in Patong went to Patong Police Station to report that a man had been caught on CCTV causing damage to an ATM machine outside the branch.
An officer from Patong Police Station who asked not be named said that after making investigations they learned that the man who caused the damage was 34-year-old Anucha Jantawong.
