In an effort to control gun crime across the city Pol. Col. Somnuk Suwanla-ong led over 100 police officers and volunteers to set up check points around town.
This started on Sukhumvit highway near the Boonthavorn mega store check point and caused a certain amount of congestion and hampered the traffic flow.
The Police carryout thorough searches.
However perhaps these checkpoints are doing there job, as many cars and motorbikes were stopped and searched and on this occasion, no lethal weapons or drugs were found, which might start to make Pattaya a safer place to live.
