In Thailand, police officers in the fight against organized crime conducted several raids, arresting criminals involved in organizing and conducting illegal gambling.
Reportedly, during one of such raids by the police, carried out in the national reserve Nujaree Raekrun, law enforcement officers were able to detain at once 26 people who were playing dice for money in the forest and organized cockfights. All offenders were taken by surprise by the police and therefore did not resist and did not have time to hide.
It is also reported that the Thai police noted that these raids by law enforcement officers were carried out at the numerous requests of local residents, who complained about the increased theft of their property, as gamblers constantly experienced financial difficulties and were engaged in theft.
