A squad of police was assigned to checkout the entire length of the beach walkway at 3.30am on July 27th after receiving a flood of complaints about disturbances and petty crime.
A total of fifty people were taken to the station, 28 were Thai women suspected of prostitution and the rest were young males.
Five of the fifty had traces of drug abuse in their systems and one was not carrying an ID card
A few minutes later most of them were released and no doubt returned to beach road.
All were profiled at the station before being fined a few hundred whereby they all probably returned to the beach to look for customers and drunken foreigners carrying too much money and wearing gold necklaces.
