Ruk Siam News reported that Pattaya police, a homeless organization and officials from the Ministry of Social Development and Human Security and other special forces were out in force clearing homeless people and beggars off the streets. 

 

A force of 50 were determined to clear up Pattaya once and for all. 

 

The media said on Facebook that the problem of vagrancy in Pattaya was "chronic" and the image they present was unseemly for what they described as a "world class resort". 

 

Despite many attempts to clear the hobos out the problem persisted resulting in the action on Friday. 

 

Two areas were targeted - the first being beach road in the south Pattaya area and Soi Bua Khao.

The homeless and beggars were loaded on a police vehicle and taken to the station to have their records checked. 

 

Some "mental cases" ran off after hurling foul mouthed insults at the authorities, they said. 

 

The second place targeted for action was Walking Street. Virtually nothing was open and there weren't any vagrants.

So the authorities made do with a few Cambodians selling things on the street. 

 

Six people were reportedly taken in. Fines were issued. 

 

Cambodians would be deported and Thais would be helped by the homeless people's organisation, said the media.

yep .... get those hobo's into a facility with a roof over their heads. Problem is with the drug addicts and vagrant's they will just return to the same area like in most cities. They don't want help just more drugs.
