Police raided a South Pattaya condominium and arrested four South Koreans for operating an online-gambling website.

Immigration, Chonburi and Pattaya police announced the apprehension of Kim Kangseon, 41, Park Haekeun, 35, Kim Youngsun, 38, and Suk Jongho, 39, at a March 12 news conference.

The four are accused of running an online casino from a fourth-floor unit at The Glass Condominium on South Road for the past two weeks. Police said they took bets from South Koreans back home on football, the lottery and other games of chance, with cash flow estimated at 2.5 million baht during that time.

For their work, each man was paid 80,000 baht a month, police said.

In addition to charging the Koreans with various gambling and immigration offenses, authorities also plan to charge the condo owners with failing to inform the Immigration Bureau of foreigners residing in their property.
