The acting head of the Region 2 police has praised a member of the public that provided a tip that led to a raid on a gambling den in Pattaya on Friday night. 

 

Chinese, Thais and a Cambodian were arrested in two rooms at a Jomtien condominium.

 

Pol Lt-Gen Roi Ingkhaphairot said it was the first tip his men had received.

 

He also praised the media. 

 

He said that the police could only do their job with the help of the public. 

 

Several ways were published by Thai Rath in their story in which people could make "Gambling Reports".

 

Information would go directly to him, said Lt-Gen Roi. 

 

The issue of gambling, long since tolerated by the Royal Thai Police, is now a hot topic as dens are seen as spreaders of Covid-19.

Gambling is just like prostitution , you will never stop either and should just legalise both and be done with it .

It is the current Covid spreading that this achieves we worry of right now.

Should have read a rival operator provided the tip off.

Or the guy they would not let in, or maybe kicked out when he ran out of money.
