Thai police arrest Australian accused of selling sex cruises

Thai police have arrested an Australian man for allegedly promoting sex cruises with prostitutes on a Facebook page, reports AP from Bangkok.

Police said Tuesday that 49-year-old Stephen Allan Carpenter was arrested the night before in the central province of Saraburi. He was brought to the seaside resort town of Pattaya, where he operated his business and an arrest warrant had been issued.

Police said Carpenter's business, AUSTHAI Tours, advertised online a six-hour cruise with Thai women at a cost of between 38,000 baht ($1,187) and 50,000 baht ($1,562). Police sought his arrest after one posed as a customer and made an advance payment.
