According to Chinese newspapers Shin Min Daily News and Wanbao, this is what the alleged bank robber looks like.

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 yesterday (11 Jul) confirmed that the Royal Thai Police had apprehended the robber. 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.

Major General Apichart Suriboonya, head of Thailand’s Interpol unit said that the suspect flew from Singapore to Thailand on Thursday, arriving at 5.08pm, and that he was arrested at noon on 10 Jul at Boxpackers Hostel in Bangkok, and is now being detained at an immigration detention centre in Bangkok.
