“Operations against illegal gambling continued unabated into the New Year, from Jan 1 to 7, 2018. Ten raids were at convenience stores and coffee shops offering online gambling reload services, as part of efforts to eradicate online gambling,” he said in a statement yesterday.

He revealed that the raids were conducted in Kuching, Padawan, Miri, Bintulu, Sri Aman, and Limbang that resulted in the arrest of 21 reload service providers and gamblers, along with the seizure of 17 tablets, mobile phones and RM3,934 in cash.

“Mobile phones, portable printers, calculators, betting slips and stationeries were also seized,” he added.

The state CID chief also revealed the arrest of 37 gamblers during a raid at a cock-fighting pit in Batu Niah, Miri on New Year’s Day.

“A team of CID personnel from the state headquarters, led by ASP Lim Jaw Shyong, conducted a raid at an open area in Hulu Suai, Niah, Miri during which 37 gamblers were arrested for cock-fighting in a makeshift tent.

“Live and dead cockerels and gambling paraphernalia related to cook-fighting were also seized.”
