A raiding party lead by chief Apichai Krobpetch hit a silk shop in north Pattaya who caters to Chinese tour groups on Monday afternoon
The operation targeted World James Collection Co. Ltd after complaints surfaced online in China that they were ripping customers off by supplying fake Thai silk.
Jowo reported that the publicity was bad for the image of Pattaya.
The raid was unsuccessful and failed to find any silk bedding which was illegal, the only goods they found were pillowcases and other items that were as advertised on their labels which clearly said 25% Thai silk and another materials.
The raiding party did however find an assortment of massage creams and body lotions which were confiscated as they were not labelled and tax had not been paid on the items.
The owners of the shop were warned that authorities would be closely observing their practises in the future.
Officers did not arrest anyone over the confiscated creams that were found.
Remember to always check the label if you have doubts about a product
