Gambling activities now fronted by coffeeshops

Illegal syndicates busted: A flashback of the front page of ‘The Star’ yesterday.

KUALA LUMPUR: After gambling joints have been smashed and their electricity supply disconnected, operators are now using coffeeshops as their front, says Kuala Lumpur police chief Comm Datuk Seri Mazlan Lazim.

He said police detected the new tactic where operators would disguise as customers at coffeeshops while using mobile devices to operate, to make their activities seemingly invisible.
