Gambling den bust nets 17 card punters

Eakkapop Thongtub




PHUKET:-- A raid on a house in the Kwang Rd area in Wichit early this morning (April 23) saw 17 people arrested for gambling and more than B15,000 in stake money seized.


Wichit Police officers led by Lt Col Narong Laksanawimol and accompanied by Royal Thai Army soldiers based in Phuket raided the house at 1am after receiving a tip-off that the venue was used as a gaming hub.


Of note, the address given in the official report only indicates that the house is located along Kwang Rd, but does not identify which housing estate the house is located within.

just some people wanting to get together and have some fun.  Should be like home poker games in the USA.  Fortunes are not exchanged.  Some food, some drink, some talk.

Just being a tad pedantic here, but..........a total of 17 people arrested for gambling, but also for possessing 8 packs of cards...........The gambling law of 1935 states a person can possess 120 cards.........which equates to 17 x 120 = 2,040 cards........8 packs = 416 cards...........A definite anomaly there.........:whistling:
