Police in Oddar Meanchey break up gambling ring

A local variant of roulette spun way out of control as seven were busted for illegal gambling by Oddar Meanchey province police.

Locating the operation in Anlong Veng district on Sunday, authorities found them playing the banned game of Ah Poung, arrested them and confiscated 530,000 riel (about $130) and four motorbikes.

Interrogations led each punter to confess to their crime, and they are now waiting to test their luck in front of a provincial judge.
