Illegal lotto leader finds that the fuzz always win

Luck ran out on Saturday for a Kampong Cham town man who had struck it rich running an illegal lottery ring out of his house.

After suspecting that the numbers of visitors to the house just didn’t amount to anything legal, police raided the place.

Upon seeing the game was up, customers took a punt on making a dash for it and successfully shook their would-be captors.

Lady Luck was not so generous to the owner, who was arrested and sent to court. DEUM AMPIL
