Cockfighting ring broken up by Battambang cops

The secluded spot evidently wasn’t secluded enough as the Battambang town boys in blue busted a cockfighting ring operating out of a rural area on Saturday.

Hearing gamblers’ shouts for a few months, nearby villagers gave police the tip-off saying 20 to 30 punters would assemble there regularly.

Cops arrived to crack down and were able to catch and arrest nine and then confiscate six roosters and four mopeds.

After being interrogated the suspects were sent off for their court proceedings.
