Chalong Police Chief Investigator Lt Col Tachin Deethongon said he was notified of the robbery at 1pm.

Official reports give the time of the robbery as 12:55pm, but CCTV recorded the man exiting the bank and leaving the car park at the mall at 12:46pm.

The man, described as Thai, wearing black cap, grey v-neck T-shirt and three-quarter shorts, entered the bank and calmly threatened bank staff with a revolver.

The man was last seen on a red Honda Wave motorcycle heading along Wiset Rd before turning into Soi Suksan 1.

Police are continuing their search for the man.

Guess not paying his gamble debts is for mr Wiwat more scary than a 'questioning' in Phuket Town police station.
