Pattaya —

Banglamung officials collaborated with Pattaya police to inspect Jomtien Beach in the early hours of Wednesday, May 1st, to enhance peace in response to noise and fireworks complaints from nearby citizens.

The initiative took place a little past midnight, also involving officials from Pattaya City Hall. The operation also stemmed from a shooting incident that occurred in the late hours of April 25th, 2024, when a 29-year-old Thai man, drunk and in a reckless state, discharged his firearm into the sea at Jomtien Beach, causing panic among tourists.

Officials conducted random checks of beachgoers, particularly teenagers, for illegal substances, weapons, and other prohibited items. They also disseminated warnings to vendors who set up stalls on sidewalks against selling prohibited goods, such as Kratom water, firecrackers, and fireworks.

The officials told The Pattaya News that these items posed a nuisance to hotel guests and residents nearby. The affected people complained to the authorities that they could neither relax nor sleep because certain beachgoers kept disturbing the peace by playing loud music, drinking, and setting off fireworks all night long.

The joint operation aimed to deter these activities to ensure a safe and enjoyable experience for everyone. Visitors are encouraged to cooperate with officials and report any illegal activities to ensure the safety of the area.
