Police have announced they’ve found more evidence of prostitution in Pattaya – this time on Walking Street, the city’s famous red light district.
On Saturday officers revealed details of a raid carried out on the Windmill GoGo that resulted in three people being arrested.
Police launched an undercover raid after receiving complaints the bar was being used as a front to sell sex to foreigners.
Police used a foreigner to go into the bar on Friday pretending to be a customer.
Once inside the bar, the foreign informant was soon given a price of 4,000 baht to have sex with one of the girls who work there.
He was then told to take the girl to a private room. Once inside, he raised the alarm and the premises were raided by a team of officers who were waiting nearby.
The girl who was offered to the undercover informant was found to be underage. She was just 16 and 6 months old.
During the raid police found accounting books detailing customer transactions and attendance cards for the women who worked there. Condoms were also found.
A man and two women were arrested. INN News withheld their names but described one as being the mamasan. Those arrested face charges relating to human trafficking, prostitution and the procurement of underage women for sex.
The news comes after police last month declared they had found no evidence of prostitution in Walking Street.
A large contingent of police and military men along with staff from the Department of Provincial Administration carried out a large scale inspection of Pattaya red light area.
Later in June, officials raided the Coming Bar on Soi 6 where evidence of prostitution was finally found.
It was discovered that for a price punters could have sex with women who worked there in one of a number of special rooms located above the bar.
The raid on the Coming Bar resulted in the transfer of the acting head of the Pattaya police Pol Col Pongphan Wongmaneethet and four of his deputies.
Pol Col Pongphan was one of the officers who had proudly declared there was no prostitution in Walking Street.
