CHON BURI, June 29 - Two British men were arrested for alleged botched automatic teller machine (ATM) thefts in Si Racha district in the seaside province of Chon Buri, according to local police.

 Alexander Milbourn, 25, and Shaun Edward Tracy, 34, were detained at their room in Chon Buri’s Bang Lamung district as they are suspected in the attempted theft of an ATM at the Bank of Ayudhya’s Laem Chabang branch at late night of June 21, Pol Lt-Gen Panya Mamen, chief of Provincial Police Region 2 announced on Friday.

 The two Britons said that they and a third man, identified only as Richard, also a suspect but who has so far evaded arrest, attempted the three ATM thefts in Si Racha district, at Bangkok Bank's Bo Win branch on June 14, Bank of Ayudhya’s Laem Chabang branch on June 21 and Bank of Ayudhya’s Bo Win branch on June 28.

 The suspects explained that they fastened a tow sling around the ATM attached to the vehicle's bumper and then drove the car at high speed in order to pull the machine out of the bank's wall.

The men said that they had run out of money and were unemployed, so they decided to take money from the ATMs.

However, they failed to get cash from any machine in the three attempts.

Police seized a tow sling, a white sedan used for the June 21st ATM theft, a grey vehicle used for the June 28th ATM theft and a pickup truck found hidden in Bang Lamung district.

 Initially, the pair was taken to Laem Chabang police station for further investigation and legal processing, while police are speeding up the search for the third man, who remains at large. (MCOT online news)
