Police aided by a contingent of Chonburi provincial police and tourist police went to in the Nong Prue area at 9 pm last night after a Chinese man was held up at gunpoint in a luxury home.
Police were tight lipped about what happened and a cordon was set up to stop reporters.
But they said that the Chinese man was a “tourist” and that five men had held him up at gunpoint and stolen more than 10 million baht from a safe.
The house was also ransacked.
The Chinese man and his group of friends were working with interpreters to help police get to the bottom of what happened.
