Police hit the jackpot as scammers’ luck runs out

A longtime police investigation into illegal lotteries hit the jackpot on Tuesday in Phnom Penh, with four arrests made.

The police carefully tracked the racket to the two locations it was being run from, before springing into action, arresting the foursome and confiscating $200, over a million riel, three printers, three calculators and other lottery-related items.

The luckless lottery organisers will have plenty of time to ponder their fortunes from the comfort of a cell.
