Nearly 400 people were searched in the clubs; none arrested.
Late night on March 6th, 2021, police in Pattaya raided night clubs across the city, including Walking Street, South Pattaya, Second Road, and Petchakul Road. The reason for the raids was to prevent illegal operation past the time specified in law, which orders clubs to shut at midnight.
A club on Petchakul Road was found to have 300 people inside at the time of the raid. People were frisked but nothing illegal was found. In the toilets, officers found four baggies with what they identified as ketamine.
One of the clubs raided was AT TIME Pattaya 90 The Legend (link to club’s Facebook page). Officers found 73 people inside this club, which had been locked from the inside to make it look like it was closed.
The venues referenced in the report all cooperated with the investigation.

My take: Raids at 4 clubs and a bit of ketamine is all that was seized. The good boys and girls were out that night, it seems.
