Pailin police cuff casino card sharp suspects

Seven Thais and two Cambodians accused of cheating in a casino in Pailin province’s Sala Krao district were arrested on Wednesday and sent to the provincial court yesterday.

Norng Vanny, deputy chief of the provincial military police’s investigation and research department, said the suspects — who were playing at the Makod Pich Casino — had used cameras and earphones to check the hands of fellow gamblers and communicate with one another.

But their ruse was up when the casino owner suspected something and filed a complaint to police, Vanny said.

The suspects said this was their second time playing at the casino, but investigations revealed that their antics had probably gone on for much longer, Vanny said.

Police had confiscated a hidden camera, five earphones, seven mobile phones, some riel and almost two million Thai baht from the group, he said.
