Upon learning of the raid, police officers visited the Bt30-million house in Chonburi’s Bang Lamung district to speak to the victim. 
The tourist said five men showed up, put a gun to his head and demanded he open the safe and hand over the cash. 
Though police have already spoken to the victim, the language barrier may make the investigation process slower. 
Footage from security cameras has been retrieved, though police are puzzled as to how the thieves managed to enter and leave the luxury estate without being noticed.
