An Australian businessman spending Christmas overseas in Thailand has made an X-rated discovery on the security cameras overseeing his luxury home in Byron Bay.
Eddie Phillips, a property developer known as the 'Spa King', was shocked to see seven naked men using his pool and allegedly damaging his property in the hours following the New Year’s Eve countdown.
“These, what I call the naked invaders, they were nothing more than vandals,” Mr Phillips told 9News from Phuket.
Footage shows the men letting themselves in through the pool gate just before 3am, using their phone torches for light. They jump in the pool, walk through the garden and even twerk on Mr Phillips’ stairs before things turned destructive.
The men appear to throw outdoor furniture into the pool, while an imported statue of a woman was beheaded. Mr Phillips alleges the naked offenders caused about $10,000 in damages in just over 10 minutes.
“I would’ve turned a blind eye to the skinny dipping if there wasn’t any damage, but you know, once I discovered that there was expensive statues and that destroyed, vandalised, I decided to get my people involved.
“These guys will be caught and they will be charged by the police and I can tell you now, I will be taking legal, commercial action against them as well."
NSW Police are now investigating the incident and anyone with information is urged to contact Crime Stoppers online or call 1800 333 000.
