Hua Hin police chief Pol Colonel Sitthichai Srisophacharoenrat held a press conference on Saturday to announce the arrest of Kongluan, 25, Ngaporn, 26, and another Cambodian man, Touchwon, 24.
Police seized several gold necklaces from them.
Sitthichai said the Hua Hin police station had received complaints from several western tourists that two Cambodian ladyboys approached and spoke with them before snatching their gold necklaces and fleeing.
