A Qatari man and a Thai woman have been arrested in the Bang Lamung district of southern Thailand for allegedly robbing a jewelry shop before fleeing the scene with gold worth more than $800,000 (3 million dirhams), according to the Bangkok Post.
The incident took place last Monday and local authorities were able to react swiftly after reviewing CCTV footage that emerged from the robbery.
A police spokesperson has named Qatari national Mohammed Ibrahim al-Malki and Azizah Udomwattananon, a Thai woman, as the two main perpetrators.
They were found hiding at a house in the Bang Lamung district of Thailand after authorities managed to track their vehicle all the way from the Nong Chang district in Uthai, where the brutal crime initially took place.
