Pattaya, the 21st of February 2010 [Pattaya Daily News]: At approximately 10:30pm on Sunday, police Colonel Nunthawut Suwanla-ong (Pattaya Police Superintendent) along with a team of police, successfully busted a large prostitute gang offering underage Thai girls for sexual service in the Pattaya area. Local residents on Third Road, Pattaya, had reported the operations to police, who immediately put together an undercover sting operation in order to catch the culprits.

After obtaining the location of the gang’s leader, an unnamed police officer went to request the services of 4 girls under the age of 18. The price of 1,500 baht per girl was agreed upon which was paid to the gang leader immediately at the ‘Chuen Jai’ restaurant on Pattaya’s Third Road.

When the 4 girls appeared, they and the gang leader were immediately arrested by the waiting police who escorted them promptly down to Pattaya Police Station. Miss Chonthicha Thabmanee [18] from Naklua, the gangs leader, under interrogation revealed that she had 15 girls that she was offering to clients for sexual service, all of who where under the age of 18.

Miss Thabmanee further explained that the usual price for one girl was 1,500 baht of which she would take a 500 baht commission and the rest would be kept by the girl. Upon her arrest Miss Thabmanee was also found in possession of 6,000 baht in cash, believed to be the proceeds from her prostitution business. Most of the girls are believed to be school students who were using prostitution as a way to fund their education.

Police have now charged Miss Thabmanee with providing under-age woman for sexual services and using a minor in an illegal manner in order to gain financial benefit. The 4 minors arrested were charged with public prostitution. Miss Thabmanee has been remanded in police custody awaiting further judicial proceedings to commence.
