THANH HOA – Twenty-four people were arrested yesterday in Thanh Hoa Province's Trieu Son District for alleged gambling.
Officers from Thanh Hoa Police Department said they had been monitoring the suspected gambling den, which is in a guest house, for several days.
Most of the accused are locals.
At the scene, police also seized VND70 million ($3,300).
