Gotta know when to fold ’em, know when to run

Police in Phnom Penh’s Sen Sok district arrested nine people at an illegal gambling den on Sunday.

Police said they went to bust up the joint after receiving a tip-off that people were gathering to play cards there daily.

When cops arrived, the school of card sharks attempted to flee the scene, though police managed to capture nine people in the house.

Police have sent those arrested to the station, and are currently searching for the home’s owner.
