Yet another unlucky porn producer has been arrested in Pattaya. This time the poor guy is either Bulgarian or Russian, the news and police don't seem to be sure. The story is that his Pattaya bar girl noticed a suspicous looking bag during their horizontal activities and after a short time went to examine it discovering a hidden video camera. The falang then gave her 300 baht and forced her to leave his room, the two began arguing in the hotel corridor and eventually the police turned up. On listening to the girls claims the police searched the guys room finding the camera, an 8gb memory card and several porn dvds hidden in the room's false ceiling. The video camera had been modified so that the red light was not visible while recording and the bag had a very tiny whole cut into it's side to allow covert filming. The poor guy is still in jail and his father is supposed to be flying into thailand to assist him.
Having looked at his covert camera set up I'm very surprised the Pattaya bar girl managed to spot it. Pretty obvious this was a non professional for personal use thing, the camera he used would have produced a very poor picture quality using hotel room lighting.
Another worrying feature of the case is the Police's appeal on tv for other 'victims' of the guy to come forward. Looks like they have learnt this trick from the CreamPieThais case of a few weeks back. Home made movie fans beware now is not a good time to be making porn in Pattaya.
