Bang Saen mayor blows a fuse! Tourist vandals may have annoyed the wrong person

Thai media reported that the mayor of Saen Suk district responsible for Bang Saen district had blown a fuse on social media after vandals damaged a number of tables and seats at the beach. 

 

He is part of an influential family well known in Thailand.

 

Narongchai Khunpluem said that the people responsible were probably drunk and lamented the fact that CCTV was not installed there yet. 

 

77kaoded suggested that tourists were responsible and went to the scene to investigate. Some repairs had been made and some damaged items had been taken away as evidence.

Local seafood seller Patchamon, 44, reckoned those responsible had been drinking there at night. She had never seen the like of it. 

 

There were bottles of lao khao (a Thai white spirit) found smashed at the scene. 

 

The people responsible may have angered the wrong person. Mayor Narongchai is part of the family of former Saen Suk mayor Somchai Khunpluem known as "Kamnan Poh" or the "Godfather of Chonburi" who died last year. 

 

He was convicted in 2004 of having a man shot and later jumped bail. 

 

Another member of the family is Sontaya Khunpluem, the mayor of Pattaya since 2018 and a political adviser of Thai prime minister Prayut Chan-ocha.

Another website says it was "Foreign tourists" and no mention of Laa Kow ( white spirit )

 

Quote

44 year old Ms. Patchamon Saekuay who is a food vendor at Bangsaen Beach and a witness told The Pattaya News she saw in the early morning foreign tourists were sitting there and drinking heavily. She did not know where the tourists were from.

She is not sure if they had a physical altercation, she told officers. Nearby, Police found many broken alcohol bottles and signs of a potential fight. Other witnesses have allegedly come forward also stating a group of intoxicated foreign tourists were responsible.

Maybe  Burmese,Cambodian or Lao  toursits ???????

This is what happens when everyone is saturated in the "foreigners are criminals" rhetoric that flows through the media here everyday now. A crime is committed and the first thought is "Must be a foreigner"--and everybody else agrees. Hell, at one point they were blaming the Lopburi shooting on a foreigner.
