Col Sanya Thongsawat, Chief of Karon Police Station and the officers first inspected Kata Yai Beach and parking spaces at 10am, along with Karon Municipality officials and Karon Police.

A surfboard rental group of four were fined for operating their business on the beach without approval from the government, Col Santi told The Phuket News’ sister publication Khao Phuket.

At 11:30am the team of officers then inspected Karon Beach, at which Col Santi reported one person was fined for illegally operating a surfboard rental business.

At 2:30 pm, the officials inspected the Patong Beach area for general organisation including illegal parking, beach vendors and operators on pavements, umbrella beds, Thai massage, and all beach operators working outside of the 10% zone.

Six tourists were fined for parking in areas not permitted for parking, two jet-ski operators were fined for parking on footpaths, and two vendors with sidecars operating from the sidewalk were also fined.

One umbrella rental operator was also fined for parking their car on the beach.

All 11 on Patong Beach have been notified and fined according to the municipality’s policy,” said Col Santi.

It’s a beach investigation according to the projects that we have while we’re taking care of this island. It’s just our normal routine, checking if everything is OK,” said Col Santi.

SUPER ... Thanks to the RTP for the good work... 
It looks like finally something starting here.
Obviously people NEED FEEs for their egoistic behaviour....get a brain, respect others and you will not be fined :) 
NEXT: TRAFFIC

Yay!...calling out the Army to tackle the surfboard mafia, ain't no messing around here.  But I think the fines are such that they're all back out there today...just like the vendors that were booted off Surin...back in full colors the following day.  Yet again, the lack of any kind of meaningful enforcement of any laws or rules just reaffirms that this place is incapable of managing any...

And the fine was 300 Bath or 5000 Bath ?

Wow some really serious crimes they uncovered, worth the infantry commander taking time off to hand out parking tickets and busting a surfboard sting, Thailand is a laughing stock, they can't even manage simple things.

Good job, but they did overlook discriminatory all the illegal parked tuk tuks.
That is not good, not fair!. 
Smells to corruption or being afraid for the 'tuk tuk mafia'. 
Take your pick!

And why is the Royal Thai police doing their work under supervision of the Royal thai army?
Seems this is saying something about problems internal the Royal thai police functioning on Phuket.
Nee...
