In Ban Beung, hundreds of 1,000 baht notes, totaling over 1.3 million baht, were found ripped, cut into pieces and left in a rubbish bin by the road. The trashed bills were found on the weekend, and on Monday, a press conference was held by the Commissioner of Royal Thai Police Bureau Region 2 Pol. Lt. Gen. Dr. Panya Mamen to publicize the success in finding the culprit in this case, Mr. Worapan Roje-sat-ta-rat, aged 30. The fellow had been taken to the police by his father Mr. Worapong, for his son Worapan to make his confession.
Mr. Worapan had stolen his father’s money from his business for 2 years, at a 1,000 Baht per day, because he felt that his father always gave money to help his brother, but not to him. The son felt unloved by his father, and was afraid that someday, the money might be all gone, so he had to save some for himself.
But, When Mr. Worapan became afraid that his father might find out about the misappropriated cash, he decided to get rid of the money. Mercifully, the father did not wish to press charges against his son, as he did feel guilty that his son believed he was treated unfairly. A bank official confirmed that the money can be glued together, and swapped for new bills at the bank.
The police gave Mr. Worapan a stern warning, and released him back to his father.
