A hunt for a mother who sold her child into the soapy massage sex trade is over.
The woman who the Thai press have dubbed “Mae Lao Pu” was arrested at a hotel in Chonburi.
The 36 year old woman had given police the runaround for three days staying in hotels in four provinces.
But she denies forcing her under 18 child into the sex business – she says she went of her own accord.
The case blew up after a raid of the “We Two Ab Ob Nuat” (soapy massage) behind the market in Lat Prao soi 55, Chok Chai district.
Police from there teamed up with 191 cops and tourist police to hunt for the mother of the sex worker who was underage.
The chase encompassed Chumporn, Bangkok, Rayong and finally Chonburi.
Spokesman Kornchai Khlaiklung said that the mother kept saying she would surrender and would then move onto another hotel.
She was finally apprehended at a hotel in Chonburi, he said.
Last night she was interrogated at two locations in Bangkok and detained as investigations into the case expand. Source: Thai Rath
