A drunk Koh Samui man was arrested for allegedly robbing a disabled lottery vendor of five tickets at gunpoint.
Chaiwichit Chaina, 38, was captured while drinking at Nangfah Karaoke on Third Road July 25. Police recovered what turned out to be a fake gun and the tickets from his wife’s purse.
The arrest came after Tewan Tungrit, 55, called police about a drunkard holding him up and making off with tickets valued at 400 baht from his stand at Third Road and Soi 23. He said once he saw the gun, he walked away and let the suspect escape.
Chaiwichit Chaina was arrested for robbing a disabled lottery vendor at (fake) gunpoint whilst intoxicated.
But the vendor saw where the suspect went to sit down and drink afterward and called police. Police said the suspect denied the charges, but made the arrest as they had enough evidence against him.
