Pattaya authorities took serious action to address the issue of a homeless couple who have been reportedly engaging in disruptive behavior, intimidating locals with weapons, and engaging in drug abuse on Jomtien Beach.

Mr. Phatthana Boonsawas, former deputy mayor of Pattaya, revealed on Thursday, November 23rd, that he received multiple complaints from residents in the vicinity of Jomtien Beach regarding the disturbing conduct of one unidentified homeless couple.

The two individuals have been causing disruptions in the area by intimidating residents and tourists and also engaging in drug abuse, according to the complaints.
