He forced Umaporn Buabutr, 22, to hold a white plastic bag he brought with him while he filled it with the gold.  He then ran off behind the Thong Thip market pursued by Big C trolley pusher Chartchai Kham-euam. But he jumped into the Kanda klong and escaped into woods.  Police deployed 30 men to flush out the robber.  They found an M 92 BB gun box, black gloves and hat discarded by house number 3/21 Moo 8 near the market.  The Sattahip force said that the man was certainly hiding out in the woods and would soon be in custody.  They seemed to know who he might be.
