An expectant father in Thailand’s south is likely to miss the birth of his offspring.

He fled on his bike without getting and money. 

But police were soon on his case after they found the adapted motorcycle and tools in a couple of locations connected to the suspect. 

Under investigation – and unlike the ATM – he cracked. 

Kiatsak said he was in debt and his wife was just about to give birth.

Police took him on a reenactment yesterday and detained him on charges of attempted theft at night and criminal damage. 

Phattalung cops quoted by Thai Rath said that Kiatsak was not a professional thief but he had gone equipped to commit the crime. 

Kiatsak had claimed earlier it was a spur of the moment thing.
