Patong –

No staffers at entertainment venues in Patong tested positive for drugs in a crackdown, say police.

A team of officials from the Kathu District Chief last night (December 13th) conducted a urine drug test on multiple entertainment venue staffers with no notification in advance.

The Patong Police Chief Colonel Sujin Nilbodee told the Phuket Express, “This is part of an entertainment venue campaign we are calling “X-Ray” to suppress illegal drug usage and sales.”

“Staffers from three entertainment venues were given drug urine tests, in total 85 staffers of which 35 were men and 50 were women. None of them tested positive for drugs.” Sujin stated.
