Police raided a gay sauna in Wang Thonglang district of the capital yesterday before dawn after a tip-off that a party of drugs and debauchery would be held, arresting 62 men.
The sauna called Faros 2 is on Ramkhamhaeng Road. The raid was conducted by 30 police after neighbours suggested a group sex activity may have been planned, said Pol Col Ekkaphop Tanprayoon, chief of Wang Thonglang police.
Pol Col Ekkaphop said the raid found revellers and sauna staff were sitting and drinking together in rooms.
While inspecting the place, police detected the smell of drugs, and found some male guests were having sex with other men before police ordered them to stop the activities.
One sachet of crystal meth, one meth pill, two syringes and several condoms were seen nearby, he said.
Pol Col Ekkaphop said the revellers were taken to Wang Thonglang police station for questioning. They were also brought for a urine drugs test and police detected drugs in 30 of the men.
Police said sauna owner Jinna Kritjinda, 63, did not admit anything while 14 of 67 partygoers confessed to using drugs.
