KUALA LUMPUR: Police have seized a range of communication devices and electrical items during a raid on a suspected football-betting centre in Taman Supreme Cheras here. 

They also found a car parked outside the place in the midnight raid last Sunday.  

Investigations showed the centre had been in operation for about two months. 

Police believed its operator took bets of nearly RM1mil a month on matches including those of the English Premier League and Italian Serie A. 

City deputy CID chief Asst Comm Wong Wai Loong appealed yesterday to the public for information on Lee Foo Siong, 31, whose identity card number is 720131106223, to facilitate investigations. 

In another announcement, police said they have solved 67 robberies – mostly carried out at 7-Eleven stores – when they crippled five robbery gangs in the past three weeks.
