Police raided an alleged gambling den in Pattaya yesterday afternoon, arresting three suspected gamblers and the house owner.
A team of Region 2 Police and Pattaya Police allegedly raided a house in Soi Arunothai
The raid came after police were informed by a “concerned citizen” that the house was being operated as a gambling den.
Three suspected male Thai online gamblers and 33-year-old house owner Khun Supawadee Rueangdet were taken to Pattaya Police Station. Police seized 18 sets of computers.
Colonel Sutthisak Wantee, the head of the Region 2 Police Cyber Taskforce, told “Snelle Jelle” our raging city reporter, the following: “This online gambling den was up and running for about three months. It connects to a larger network of gambling sites in the Kingdom and we are continuing our investigation to track them down.”
Supawadee reportedly confessed to Pattaya Police: “We had about three to five gamblers in the house every day. If they won, they would receive about 8,000 to 10,000 baht. We found customers through social media and internet advertising.”
Colonel Sutthisak added: “Supawadee is accused of operating an illegal gambling hall and illegally advertising online gambling. The three online gamblers are also facing legal action.”
