Wannabe thieves attempt to drug staff at Lampang gas station

In a strange, alleged attempt to rob a gas station in Lampang, wannabe thieves tried to trick staff to smell a perfumed cream they were allegedly selling in an attempt to knock them out.

The cream itself is alleged to have had a knockout drug in it – described by local media as an anesthetic, likely chloroform or similar.

At least one staff member tried smelling the cream before passing out while fortunately, pump staff at the gas station worked out that something was wrong, chasing the wannabe thieves away.

Police are studying CCTV footage in an attempt to identify the perpetrators.
