Police arrest 13 for online gambling

Police arrested 13 people and seized 54 computers and 41 slot machines in a raid at a shopping mall in Ampang tonight.
Raiding party leader DSP Mohamed Mokhsein Mohamed Zain said the 13 aged 19-50 years-old were arrested in the raid on three premises at about 9.30pm.

He said they were busy playing computer games in the premises when police pounced on them.

The premises operate 24 hours under the guise of internet cafes and family entertainment centres.

“The premises are also equipped with closed-circuit television (CCTV) to control customer traffic,” he told reporters at the raid location. The case is investigated under Section 4B (A) Common Gaming Houses Act 1952.
