Gambling den raided in Korat

Provincial officials raided a gambling den in Muang district on Tuesday night, arresting 45 people and seizing around 70,000 baht in cash laying on card and dice tables.

The den was operating inside the premises of a former barbecue restaurant in tambon Jo Ho. The raid was conducted by provincial officials supported by troops from the 21st Army Circle.

They rounded up 45 men and women and seized over 70,000 baht in cash, six packs of cards, gambling chips and two dice-game sets.

Officials said they had received a tip-off from local people that the former family restaurant was being used as a Hi-Lo den.

The suspects admitted to playing dice and card games but none admitted to organising the gambling. All were handed over to local police to face charges.
