On the run for 18 months, the former owner of a Samae San brothel was arrested after he got bored and returned to the scene of his alleged crime.

Anucha Sroianusorn, 50, was apprehended by Chonburi Immigration Police June 18 while walking in front of the Samae San Guesthouse in Sattahip District. He was charged with trafficking illegal aliens into prostitution, providing aliens with illegal residences and pimping.
