In the early hours of Saturday Police raided the popular Mixx Discotheque located at the Southern end of Walking Street and arrested 5 people, 3 of them Russian Nationals, who failed presumptive drug tests.
The raid was conducted by the Police Region 2 Special Investigations Unit along with Pattaya Police and took place at 2.30am. Inside the venue at the time were over 200 Thai and foreign patrons. Some were able to escape but Police quickly sealed off every exit and began checking for passports or ID cards and also random checks for illegal drugs via urine tests were made.
The first alleged offense noticed by Police was that the venue was open after its licensed opening hours. At the end of the urine testing, 5 people were detained for further investigation, consisting of two staff members, 2 Russian women and 1 Russian man.
