Region 2 police raided four Pattaya pharmacies, arresting owners for allegedly selling real and counterfeit sexual-performance drugs.
Officers raided the Baan Phet Clinic, Pattaya Drugstore, Merridian and NB pharmacies March 1-3, using a foreign undercover assistant to purchase Viagra, Kamagra and other erectile dysfunction drugs before storming the shops once the purchase was complete.
Tens of thousands of baht in Viagra, Cialis, Kamagra and other drugs have been confiscated in raids of local pharmacies this month.
The shopkeepers were taken into custody and charged with selling prescription drugs over the counter and selling sexual performance drugs without a license.
Another shopkeeper at NB Pharmacy, on Second Road, faced the same charges, plus charges of selling counterfeited drugs not licensed in the kingdom, as the “Viagra” allegedly sold to the foreign helper was found to be fake, police said.
In each raid, tens of thousands of baht in Viagra, Cialis, Kamagra and other impotency drugs were confiscated.
