CARD GAMES ARE THEIR CRACK: POLICE
Police in Kampong Cham province have arrested four “addicted card-players” caught getting their fix in a coffee shop in Koh Sotin district. The raid was carried out Sunday after police received a string of complaints from nearby residents, who accused the suspects of engaging in “robbing and stealing activities”. Police said the miscreants were unemployed and did not support their families. Instead, they spent all day every day in the coffee shop. There are “so many” card-players in the province, but they are difficult to catch because they always flee when raids are conducted, police said. The four card-players caught on Sunday have been sent to the provincial court.
