A Turkish owned Luxury Car Showroom in Central Pattaya was raided by the Banglamung Police together with the Excise Officials.

The search warrant was issued by the Pattaya Provincial Court. This raid was prompted by a Department of Special Investigations (DSI) operation in Bangkok which uncovered many luxury imported cars whose owners had not paid the correct import taxes.

Targan Yildir is the owner of the Auto Exchange Company located on the Sukhumvit Road, he was only able to provide officials with copies of relevant documents for all the cars as they were all under finance with Thai Banks who were holding the original documents as collateral. Further checks will be made by Police to confirm the copy documents are in-order. No other issues were uncovered.
