Kuwaiti gang in Pattaya faces police prosecution

Kuwaiti gang in Pattaya faces police prosecution

Pattaya police confiscated 15 motorcycles from a Kuwaiti gang for disturbing traffic on Yen Sabai Road in Chonburi's Bang Lamung district in the early hours of Monday morning.

In a raid led by deputy inspector Pol Captain Wuthikorn Plodprong, the police moved in on the gang at 1am after residents on Yen Sabai Road and commuters who use the road reported being affected by gang activities.

Commuters claimed that they could not use the thoroughfare because the gang parked their motorbikes in such a way as to block the road entrance as well as people’s homes. The gangs often travel in groups and rev their engines loudly.

When the police arrived at the scene, they found motorbikes parked on both sides of Yen Sabai Road, obstructing traffic.

Using sirens to attract the bikers’ attention, the authorities ordered the Kuwaiti gang to move their motorbikes out of the area. The gang chose to ignore the warning and stood watching the police. Officers then confiscated 15 bikes and informed the riders they would be prosecuted.

An unidentified store owner said that these events are a daily occurrence. These gangs like to park their bikes, obstruct traffic, and rev their engines loudly, sometimes doing burnouts and honking loudly in groups.

The store owner added that he was unable to sleep at night out of fear of an attack and urged the police to prosecute these tourists and the store that rented the vehicles to them.
