3 Thai Police Reassigned After Failing to Find Gambling Ring

This story was published more than 4 years ago.

Last week it was revealed that three police officers in the Nakhon Ratchasima province of Thailand were transferred from their posts after they failed to notice a gambling ring operating in their midst.

The ring was discovered when the Thai military raided the location last Friday, where they seized 150,000 baht, cards, chairs, and a gambling table. The three officers are being investigated in relation to the ring, as investigators found it unlikely that the ring could have been operating under their vision.

Officials involved in the case believe that the gambling den was serving between 30 and 50 punters daily, generating roughly 500,000 baht ($14,236 USD) daily.

The three officers are currently assigned to the Muang police station until the investigation is complete.

Obviously those three police officers had been part of this illegal gambling ring one way or another. I think the only question is what's the size of the bribe they've took and not if they took it.
