18 arrested on raid on gambling operation in Chiang Saen

18 people were arrested following a raid on a gambling operation in Chiang Saen, Chiang Rai yesterday, March 1.

The raid, led by police, local officials and the National Anti-Corruption Commission targeted a home in Moo 9 Wiang, finding what some reports refer to as a “casino.”

Describing the operation as a casino might be a slight exaggeration but they did find 18 people, seven packets of playing cards, cash and what appears to be two gambling machines.

Those arrested were taken to a local police station where they were charged with gambling offenses. It’s not clear if they were detained in custody but police are pursuing further legal action.
