Two Pattaya lottery dealers were arrested for selling tickets at higher than legal prices.
Boonpeng Kaewoharn, 54, and Sawart Kaewoharn, 51, were taken into custody at the Wat Chaimongkol Market in South Pattaya Sept. 1 for allegedly selling 80-baht lottery tickets for 90-baht.
Police said they confessed that they had bought their ticket allotment from a middleman at higher-than-market prices and thus needed to sell to retail customers at higher prices or they wouldn’t make any profit.
The two were fined and told to stick to legal pricing.
