Pattaya Police Raid Luxury Karaoke, Drug Test Foreign Patrons, Nothing Illegal Found

Pattaya –

Pattaya Officers inspected a luxury karaoke on the evening of June 2nd, 2023, to prevent crimes especially those by foreigners.

About 50 officers led by Chonburi Deputy Commander Colonel Patikorn Sornchai, the Pattaya City Police Chief colonel Tahanapong Poethi, Immigration officers, and tourist police inspected an entertainment venue where there are normally a lot of foreign customers, especially Chinese nationals.

Officers inspected the ‘Tomorrow Land Club’ located on Pattaya Third Road which has many luxury Karaoke rooms. One room was found with multiple Chinese customers. Their passports were checked to ensure they were not on a visa overstay and staffers and customers were drug tested. None of the people present tested positive for illegal drugs.

Colonel Patikorn told the Pattaya News, “The inspection is aimed to prevent crimes conducted by both Thai nationals and foreigners. If business operators notice anything out of the ordinary please report this to the police.”

This raid came less than a day after a similar karaoke raid in Bangkok, which we covered below. Pattaya police did not answer a question posed by reporters asking if the inspection of the Pattaya karaoke venue was related to the Bangkok raids. Pattaya police did, however, say that club inspections would continue.

Exclusive luxury parties only for Chinese nationals were raided at karaoke rooms in Bangkok and 48 Chinese people and illegal drugs were found.
