Police rounded up a dozen illegal Cambodians and arrested a Thai woman who allegedly put them to work as beggars in Si-Mum-Muang market.

Officials from the Children and Women Protection Center apprehended a woman identified only as “Cholada” Jan. 6 after vendors and customers at the Laem Chabang market complained about illegal aliens panhandling there. Police captured eight adults and four children working at the market.

The 45-year-old suspect was charged with human trafficking and the Cambodians deported home.
