    escaped with almost 300,000 baht in cash.
    not much of a businessman and even less of a robber.

    one decent benz easily filched from a bangkok car park would have seen him in profit.

    Trying to speed off "in his motorcycle" was probably the problem, been easier to sit "on it"...better luck next time, in about 10 years.
