Two people were arrested and about 100,000 baht in illegal sex drugs and toys seized during raids in Pattaya.

Banglamung District Chief Naris Niramaiwong led Pattaya and Tourist police and officers from Excise Office 2 and the Bang­lamung District Public Health Office in the sweep of South Pattaya shophouses. Similar crackdowns were carried out at the same time in Bangkok.

Authorities said they were looking for banned aphrodisiacs like Spanish Fly and date-rape drugs such as gamma-hydroxybutyrate. Police did find GHB at two stores, along with illegal sex toys, untaxed smuggled cigarettes and Taser weapons.

Proprietors Jirakrit Techa­wanitch, 47, and Suchada Sanmahachai, 49, were taken into custody. Both claimed they got the contraband from a Bangkok supplier.
