A 23-year-old internet model has been arrested in Bangkok for allegedly persuading people to gamble online, police said on Thursday.

Officers arrested Lalada at a condominium in Lat Phrao district on Wednesday. Her surname was not given.

The woman, also known as "Noon OnlyFans", was charged with organising gambling activities and luring people into gambling through advertising and persuasion.

The arrest followed a police investigation that Ms Lalada had posted photos of herself with links to gambling websites on her Facebook page. She also posted messages to lure people to apply for membership to the online gambling website "omega9".

During questioning, Ms Lalada admitted to owning the accounts and added that she began luring people into online gambling in 2018.

She said two gambling websites had hired her to advertise for them, paying her 20,000 baht for posting photos with gambling advertisements 30 times per website.

The woman was held in police custody for legal action.
