The Phuket Tourist Police yesterday (Thursday) arrested two tourists at a Phuket market after begging for donations so they could continue their travelling.

The Phuket Tourist police and the Phuket City Police found the two tourists at the Boat Plaza Market in Samkong yesterday (August 23) – a 21 year old Ukrainian man and a 30 year old Russian man.

The two tourists were sitting on the ground with a message scribbled on cardboard stating that they have been traveling in Asia for 15 months.

“Now we’ve spent all our money.”

They want people to support them to make they dream come true. They were taken to the Phuket City Police Station where they have been charged with “committing trouble and annoying other people in public.”

They pair were fined 500 baht each.

UPDATE: The two were seen later that evening, with another cardboard sign, this time claiming there was a problem with their motorbike and they needed money for repairs. But they were trying the same game in other tourist hot spots before they ended up in Patong.

Here they are a few weeks before in Krabi…

    the answer to these useless beggars?
    first jail them in thailand preferably made to work in jail,
    then make their countries airline fly them back home
    & let them then pay for the flights by working in jail.
    never let them back in thailand again,there are
    more than enough useless russians around.
