2 August 2013

A couple of gambling addicts decided to jump into the narrow sea in an attempt to escape police arrest. The cops were on a raid against illegal gambling at a fishermen's hut, near the Tun Dr Lim Chong Eu Expressway, a few days ago.

State CID deputy chief, ACP Mohd Nasir Salleh gave a statement that the police arrested six men aged between 31 and 55 while the other gamblers escaped by jumping into the sea.

"They swam away and have not been detected yet," he told reporters.

In the operation "Ops Dadu", police confiscated 52 pieces of playing cards, RM55 in cash left on a table and money found on the arrested gamblers.

Mohd Nasir said those arrested were brought to the North-East district police headquarters for investigation under Section 7(2) of the Open Gaming House Act 1953, which carries a jail term of up to six months or a fine not exceeding RM5,000. - Bernama

The Asian territory is well-known for the illegal land casino operations that are taking place in many states and that involve hundreds of gamblers every day. There is no regulation to allow gambling in most of the member countries, but some people can't help it from gambling and they do everything they can to stop the police from catching them in their illegal acts.
