THANH HÓA — An online 14-member gambling ring, allegedly involved in accepting bets on football, amounting to more than VNĐ1.3 trillion (US$57.8 million), was smashed in the central Thanh Hóa Province, local police said.

The police seized 20 mobile phones, five laptops, two self-made guns and about VNĐ1 billion ($44,500) in cash from the gang on Sunday.

Two leaders of the ring were identified as Nguyễn Thế Hiếu and Nguyễn Thành Trung, both residents of Thanh Hóa City.

The case is being investigated further.

Six months ago, the Thanh Hóa Province police, working with the Police Department for High-Tech Crime Prevention under the public security ministry, smashed a huge gambling ring that appropriated nearly VNĐ1 trillion ($44.5 million). — VNS
