Cops cut electricity supply to four premises selling illegal lottery tickets

MANJUNG: Four premises here were found selling illegal lottery tickets despite being slapped with compounds and raided several times.

Manjung police chief Assistant Commissioner Nor Omar Sappi today said the four premises were operating as grocery stores and motorcycle dealers in Sitiawan and Ayer Tawar.

“They’ve each been raided more than three times, but they’ve still been selling illegal lottery tickets since two years ago.

“We are cutting their electricity supply,” he said during an operation to cut the electricity supply to these premises here.

The operation was carried out by the Manjung police headquarters with Tenaga Nasional Bhd.

Nor Omar said the fines imposed on the premises might not deter them from operating again.

“They run retail premises selling essentials but they’re also selling illegal lottery tickets.

“We will take action against these stubborn premises.”

He said police had opened 306 investigation papers into gambling activities with 253 cases prosecuted and 14 premises having their electricity cut.

“This year, 228 investigation papers have been opened with 140 charged and another 58 cases under investigation. We have seized cash worth RM27,500.”
