Calling cops a bad bet for illegal bookies in Phnom Penh

Three people may want to read the Kingdom’s laws more carefully after they were arrested for calling police to their own illegal football gambling establishment yesterday in Teuk La’ak II commune in Phnom Penh.

The constabulary were called to the scene after two punters lost $1,000 then tore some bills when they tried to snatch them out of a staff member’s hand, before fleeing.

Arriving at the betting parlour, cops noted the place had no gambling licence, so they shut it down and booked the three purveyors.
