Bangkok gambling den busted, 92 charged


Ninety-two people were arrested in a joint Army-police raid on a gambling den in Bangkok’s Bang Kapi district on Tuesday night.

Investigators seized Bt196,185 in cash along with gambling equipment.
Twenty-nine migrant workers were among those arrested in the raid on a two-storey building on Soi Lat Phrao 119 in Klong Chan sub-district at 10pm Tuesday. 
First Cavalry Squadron (King’s Guard) commander Colonel Noppasit Sitthipongsopon, leading the operation with Lat Phrao police superintendent Pol Colonel Saksit Meesawat, said complaints of suspicious night-time activity at the building had been received. 
Since no one admitted to running the gambling den or owning the building, the names of all of those found on the premises had been submitted to Lat Phrao police for further legal action.
