Working on a tip-off they went to Baan Yen Sabai, within Soi Daengdum Thepprasit where they knew that women were offering sexual services.
They witnessed a total of 16 women offering their services to passersby for 1500 baht, and after identifying themselves police arrested all the women and the owner of the premises.
They were all taken to the station where they were processed and fined 500 baht each before being released.
Meanwhile another team of officers detained more women selling sexual services from many other venues such as the Rak Jung bar in South Pattaya, the Ruu-Jai bar,the KK bar.
It seems unlikely that the fine of 500 baht will serve as much of a deterrent to these women, who can make that kind of money in a few moments.
