Banglamung Police devote evening to 31-baht gambling bust


Forget drug dealers, gold thieves and murderers, Banglamung Police Station officers in Takientia spent their Saturday night arresting four card players for gambling with 31 baht.

Three women and a man between 39 and 59 were arrested near the Railway Road in Rong Poh around 8:30 p.m. April 9. Enough money to buy plate of noodles and a pack of old cards were collected.

The four complained they were just minding their own business and having fun. No word on how impressed – or not – senior Banglamung officers were with the “big bust.”
