    Published on 29/07/2013

    » A Thai garment seller reported to police with a video clip that every morning a neighbour passed his house and threw human faeces at the windows or doors. Tawewat Somboonawin, 37, said he was a vendor at the main South Pattaya market, opposite Chaimongkol temple, and was astonished to confirm it was another clothes seller who was the party guilty of this very annoying and smelly habit. Police interviewed Somboon Nhongai who confessed that she had been having arguments for years with Tawewat and decided to take matters into her own hands by becoming a flying dung expert. She was fined 1,000 baht and told to clear up the disgusting mess outside her neighbour’s house. She also promised to keep the excrement to herself in future.

    Published on 09/05/2013

    » Three men dressed as monks were detained on South Pattaya Road as they were receiving alms from passersby. Police suspected that they were not genuine monks because they could not identify which temple they were affiliated with, yet claimed they were collecting cash to repair a temple.  One of the men, Jaroon, said that he needed to use the toilet at the nearby Chaimongkol temple, and then fled, leaving behind his robe and alms bowl. The other two men were released with a warning to refrain from begging.
