The men were known to target small independently-owned booths and those operated by Thai banks. Their method of stealing the cash would involve them requesting specific letters on the serial numbers of the Thai bank Notes which they would secretly place in their pockets and return fewer notes to the Teller than they had received. They would then exchange the notes for US Dollars and the Teller would be unaware of the stolen Thai currency which the men would then leave with. Eventually, one of the Tellers working for a popular Thai Bank realized what was going on and reported it to her manager who informed the Police who were able to examine CCTV footage and obtain copies of the suspects passports which are routinely taken during such a transaction. Both men were charged with theft and await their time in Court.
