PATTAYA, THAILAND — Local police arrested British pornographer John Gilbert Bowen, aka John T. Bone, along with two associates, today in Thailand. According to the Pattaya Daily News, the trio will be charged with various offenses in relation to the production and sale of pornography and could face deportation.

Pattaya Police Maj. Chaikrit Thong-in issued the warrant for Bowen’s arrest, which was served at an apartment complex he used to film adult content using local citizens. Police seized movie cameras, sex toys, digital cameras, 300 mini-DV tapes, 200 DVD and VCD adult movies, a customer list and laptop computers, according to reports.

The production and sale of pornography in Thailand is explicitly forbidden.

Also arrested were Kyle Mark Micgram, aka Vin Cross, Bowen’s close friend and photographer who helms the "Asian Fever" series for Hustler Video, and Paul Sangsuwan, aka Chuck Wow, Bowen’s talent recruiter and translator, who also directs for Platinum Blue Productions among others.

Police discovered a fully functional porn studio in the apartment Bowen rented, complete with lighting, flash equipment and costumes. Bowen allegedly admitted to police that he rented the apartment five months ago and used it to shoot local girls and transsexuals for his various websites and DVDs.

Bowen has directed hundreds of DVD lines for companies including Platinum Blue, Metro, Heatwave, Zane and others. He is best known for directing Annabel Chong in “The World’s Biggest Gang Bang.”

The Pattaya Daily News reported that Bowen would likely be deported after he wends his way through the Thai justice system.
