HCM CITY — City police have crushed a large-scale gambling ring after more than three months of following their movements.
The city police on Monday raided 11 illegal internet gambling dens and illegal lotteries organised by the ring, arresting seven and seizing more than VNĐ5 billion (US$220,000) in cash and various exhibits.
The ring was headed by Trần Văn Mười Hai, born in 1975 and residing in HCM City, and a Chinese man. The duo had organised cock fights, illegal lotteries and high-stakes internet gambling, worth over a trillion đồng (millions of US dollars).
Hai co-operated with Chinese-Malaysian gamblers to release fake gambling results, causing several fights with other gangs.
The police are now expanding the investigation. — VNS
