Cops never heard of notorious gaming den

Police on Tuesday promised an investigation after receiving word from locals that a crowded gambling house in Battambang province’s Thmar Koul district was operating smoothly right under their noses.

Villagers reported seeing patrons congregate to place bets, play cards and engage in a variety of other unsavoury games. They also voiced fears a horde of losing gamblers might lead to robberies.

Predictably, district police said they’d never heard of the joint, but promised to send an officer to inspect it, eventually.
