Wanbao said that the image was captured at the Thai immigration after he left Singapore. The newspaper also said that the suspect’s name is David James Roach. Earlier newspaper reports that the police were looking for a suspect who is an Australian is false. The suspect is believed to be a Canadian.

The Police also said that they managed to establish the identity of the suspect early and on the same day of the robbery (7 Jul) but that he had already left Singapore for Bangkok, shortly after the crime was reported.
