There has been a robbery in 3 universities up in Northern Thailand. It is suspected that all 3 robberies were conducted by the same foreign female thief.
The thief targets universities and chooses to break in at night when there are only security guards at the location.
The first robbery took place on the 6th of this month at Chiang Mai University in Chiang Mai province. The robbery at Chiang Mai University sparked two more similar robberies with the possibility of more robberies in Universities up North in the case that the thief is not arrested soon.
The second robbery took place the next day on the 7th of this month at Maejo University located also in Chiang Mai province. The latest robbery took place on the 9th of this month at Chiang Mai Rajabhat University in Chiang Mai province.
In the latest robbery, the thief wore a mask covering her face and a loose bodysuit to cover her body and to also hide her body shape. It was clear that she prepared for the robberies and aimed only to universities in the area for a currently unknown reason. She shut down the power as she went into the Chiang Mai Rajabhat University. She then entered many different rooms and stole teaching equipment.
Police Colonel Piyapun Patarapongsin from the Chiang Mai Police called in the investigation team from other connected police stations to the robbery including the Changpuak Police, Phu Ping Ratchaniwet Police, and Mae Jo Police. Together the police gathered the security footage from each university. Another major piece of evidence was footprints collected that matched together. The footprint is approximately 22 centimeters long and 7 centimeters wide.
The security footage from the Chiang Mai Rajabhat University showed a female that looked like a foreigner with long hair and a height of approximately 160 centimeters. She entered the university at 7 pm on the 8th of this month and hid in one of the university buildings until 5 am on the 9th of this month. The thief wore a different outfit from when she entered the university in an attempt to disguise the eye.
The team of 4 police stations have gathered enough information and have an idea of who it might be. An arrest warrant will be issued for the suspect, the date has not been fixed to when they will carry on with the arrest mission. The Immigration Police have also been notified of the crime and the suspect information.
