On 6 February 2008, at 4:30am, Pattaya Superintendent, Police Colonel Nopadol Wongnom was informed that a group of teenagers, armed with weapons, was headed to Nour Pub. Police Colonel Nopadol instructed Inspector, Police Major Pasakorn Paijit and Police Captain Wootiapat Napachot, along with a police team, to investigate.

Pattaya – The pub, situated in a single story building, was still open at that late hour, but the outside lights were turned off. Loud music emanated from the venue and a large number of people were hanging around inside and outside of the pub. Police ordered pub management to turn off the music and close the establishment immediately, as it was late and way past the legal opening hours.

As the customers emerged from the pub, the police inspected each customer, as well as, their vehicles. The searches netted three guns and lots of bullets. Authorities also retrieved knives and a baseball bat hidden in the cars. Police arrested the owners of the various contrabands and brought them to the police station.

Among the weapons found was a .9mm automatic pistol, with no registration number, and six bullets, which belonged to Mr. Artit (Keng) Kamhang (25), address 20/4 Baansuan, Chonburi, who was driving a blue, Isuzu automobile, license no. 2 tor-2333, Bangkok. Mr. Wallop (Pong) Wichienchai (31), address 68 Moo 8, Parknam, Gland, Rayong, had hidden a .9mm gun, no. Bkk-39130736, with ten bullets, in his car. Mr. Jetsada (M) Rattikuo (17), address 35 Moo 1, Baan Suan, Chonburi, had an illegal, .357 pistol, with no registration number, and six bullets, hidden in his car, as well. In addition, a one meter long Sparta knife and a baseball bat were found in a bronze Honda automobile, license no. 4262, Bangkok, belonging to Mr. Adisorn Pamchoosri (21), address 71 Moo 1, Sadorpong, Kow Kor, Pechboon. All were charged with carrying weapons in public.

Police said that this pub has been operating, nearly every night, past legal opening hours and have been warned to close on time. However, they have flaunted the law and continued to stay open late. The authorities stated that, as evidenced by the many weapons they found belonging to customers, and the drunken state of many of them, the situation was quite dangerous and something serious could occur at any time.
