Two Alleged Russian Prostitutes Arrested in Patong

Patong –

Two alleged Russian prostitutes were arrested in Patong after a sting operation.

The Region 8 Police told the Phuket Express that on Tuesday (March 5th) they arrested two Russian women who were identified only as Miss Anna, 18, and Miss Olga, 23, in a room at a hotel on the Phra Metta Road in Patong.

The arrest came after police operated a sting operation after they received a tip off from a concerned citizen that there were Russian prostitutes working illegally in Patong. The two Russian women advertised themselves on an undisclosed website.

The two Russian women communicated with an undercover police officer via the WhatsApp application. They agreed on a price of 14,000 baht each for their services and made an appointment at an unidentified hotel where they were eventually arrested.

They were taken to the Patong Police Station to face charges of prostitution and advertising for prostitution, as well as working illegally. They are also likely to be deported.
