Stopped By The Police

Recommended Posts

They know the old guys are just here for the sex, and figure the young ones are druggies.

Yes. I agree. I am in my 30's and I figured they were searching for drugs. I am just relieved they didn't place any in my bag when they were searching it. The experience however was quite nerve wracking even though I had nothing to hide.

They generally only do that when they want to get you for something else, messing with a cops daughter/wife etc.

The normal scam that way is to have a "licensed dealer" turn over a certain number of suckers per week after selling them stuff in the bars around KSR, to show the public they're keeping on top of the problem 8-)

Never in 12 years. You mentioned " bald headed type", any visible tattoos?

Never in 10 yrs. It could be the mask that gives you away and the Bank bag.

Dam. That must have been it. I never thought the police would notice.

On the road to Nong Khai, I was driving 180 kph. The police stopped me, they fined me 400B and asked me to drive a bit more slowly.

And also I turn right in front of World Trade where I was supposed to go straight. They asked for 1,000 and we settled for 200

That's about it

They'll search the old guys also for drugs ( performance enhancers ) ! Shake downs at Ekamai bus station commonplace .....don't forget your prescriptions now !!

I have been stopped twice. Once in a taxi during the red shirt protest. They got me out of the taxi for a search. Very intimidating but no problems. Second time was in September at Ekami bus station. 3 cops surrounded me and searched me and my bags. They Also had a hold of my passport for longer than what was comfortable. Again all very intimadating. They said they were searching for bombs. I had a lot of prescription meds with me. But they accepted my explanation that they were for my heart and they let me rush off to Nana for a few drinks to calm my nerves :-)

Yeah. Ekkamai bus station seems to be a favourite place. When they stopped me there they were intent on rummaging through my backpack. However, when they saw my passport and realised i was British, they were far more interested in talking about football than my bag lol
