Two held in anti-gambling raids in KL thought to be part of syndicate

KUALA LUMPUR: Anti-gambling raids have led to the arrest of two suspects believed to be part of a gambling operation.

Brickfields OCPD Asst Comm Anuar Omar said in a statement on Wednesday (July 7) that the raids were conducted on Tuesday (July 6) in Taman Sri Sentosa and Taman Yarl here.

"The second raid led to the seizure of a computer which we believe was used in the gambling operation, as well as RM40,000 in cash," he said.

Both suspects, aged 27 and 51 years, will be brought to court for a remand order.

In an unrelated incident, a report lodged by a man over a supposed snatch theft was deemed false after several queries were left unanswered by the complainant.

"The 28-year-old man lodged a report on July 6 stating that he had been attacked by two unknown men. He claimed that a bag containing RM200, documents and his IC were stolen then.

"However, during questioning the man was unable to provide the location of the supposed incident, and was drunk," ACP Anuar Omar said.

The man has been granted bail.
