A heavily intoxicated Russian who had earlier been drinking at a friend’s party and was on his way back to Pattaya crashed his Honda Civic limousine into a Mazda pick-up on Sukhumvit Road late Sunday night, causing serious damage to both vehicles. The accident occurred opposite the Elephant Camp in Najomtien.
32-year-old Sergey Karvatski and the passengers of the Mazda pick-up fortunately suffered only minor injuries. Mr Sergey was however arrested for drunk driving and causing a serious road accident.
A four-men ladyboy gang were arrested by a police patrol on Pattaya Beach Road late Saturday night after they had snatched a gold necklace from a Sri Lankan tourist opposite the entrance to Soi 13. All four transgender sex workers were found to be repeat offenders and admitted to many similar crimes against tourists in the past.
Who says Chinese tourists visiting Pattaya haven’t got money to spend? To judge only from recent crime stories where growing numbers of new-rich Chinese tourists have expensive gold necklaces snatched from around their necks it seems they’ve at least got money to show off.
