It came about when Wachira Ariyapongkorn, 41, an employee at a pet food shop said he brought in 80,000 takings to be deposited into the account of the shop owner.

But later checks showed that only 40,000 baht was entered in the bankbook and on the slip.

CCTV footage showed only some of the money being counted, it was claimed last week.

Unusually in these cases the bank was named – it was the Kasikorn branch at Wat Singh, Chainat.

The bank said that investigations are ongoing from their perspective.

But police say they have enough to go to court.

The owner of the shop, Saisunee, claimed when the story broke that this was not the first time that she had had problems with the staff at that branch.
