The ring was led by 30-year-old Nguyễn Tùng Khanh, a resident of Tân Sơn Ward in the city.

The city’s anti-crime police department has temporarily arrested 10 persons (six women and four men) for further investigation.

The raid and arrest were carried out by a joint team of the city’s anti-crime police and local police force of Bỉm Sơn City and Thiệu Hóa District.

Police raided 16 illegal gambling locations that were used by the ring and seized VNĐ700 million in cash, 24 mobile phones and two laptops.

According to initial investigation of the police, Khang had set up the ring last March. The ring functioned through branches across the northern province of Thanh Hóa, including Hoằng Hóa, Đông Sơn, Yên Định, Ngọc Lặc, Thường Xuân and Thiệu Hóa districts as well as Thanh Hóa City and Bỉm Sơn Township.

The gamblers in the gambling ring kept in touch through Facebook and Zalo.

More than VNĐ100 billion were exchanged since March.

According to the Ministry of Public Security, crimes involving the use of internet to illegally appropriate assets, organise gambling rings, trade fake invoices and launder money were becoming more sophisticated.
