Maj Surasak Pungyaem of the 25th Military Circle, based at the Royal Thai Army Region 4 headquarters in Nakhon Sri Thammarat, led the raid of 25 police and security personnel on a two-storey townhouse in the Saensuk Community area at 11pm after receiving a tip-off.

The officers arrived to find the front door locked, and forced entry into the home. Inside, they found 27 men and women of ages 30 to 70 gathered, “having fun” and playing the local gambling game “Prawn-Fish”, reported officers.

“There were 12 men and 15 women playing Prawn-Fish. They were in possession of B8,800 and had a table with gambling equipment on it,” one officer told The Phuket News.

Officers took about four hours to complete the raid and record the details of all the gamblers caught at the scene, the officer said.

The suspects were arrested and taken to Phuket City Police Station to be questioned by Maj Akkaradet Pongprom and Lt Col Pongpichan Chayanonpiriya.
Authorities later confirmed that they had charged the gamblers for playing a gambling game without permission.

Expats and most law obeying thai inhabitants are not thinking about 'Agreements'.

They just expect normal law enforcement.
And yes, there are expats on Phuket as a part of the society here.
And many expats contribute positively to the Phuket society.

Criticism is a way to get things moving in a democratic country.
This is not bashing, it is helping to get things done.

Yes I have to agree ... The army and police should take NO further action without checking first with the experts who post here. They know what is best for Thailand.

Why this Army Unit is not going to patrol the coral reefs to check on anchoring by tourist boat crews?
Pleasant day time job.

Great Job Thai Army and police !!!  Get those 27 heinous criminals off the streets for "playing a gambling game without permission".  Forget every vehicle in the public transport mob carrying weapons and willing to use them at the drop of a hat...these people "having fun" as referenced in the article...must be a top law enforcement priority.  My oh my.
