For the third time in its history a well-known and unusually high profile Sex Shop at a North Pattaya Shopping Center has been raided by Police for exactly the same reason it was raided on the previous two occasions.
Officers from the Police Region 2 Child and Women Protection Unit and the Anti-Human Trafficking Division conducted a raid of the “Pattaya House of Condom” located on the second floor of the Central Center, otherwise known as Big C North Pattaya. Inside the shop was the owner, Khun Sopawan aged 22 who claims to also sell many of the items on the internet.
The shop has been raided twice before and on both occasions substantial fines were paid. She then took the chance to re-open due to the good income generated by the shop with the majority of her customers being bar workers and young foreign couples.
Police seized a number of items including plastic imitation penis’s and sex enhancement creams and tablets which are not approved for sale by the Thai Food and Drink Administration. Approximately 40,000 Baht’s worth of items were seized and Khun Sopawan expects to receive another fine but promises to re-open as soon as she can.
