    Police Arrest 6 from Online Gambling Ring & Seize 50 Million Baht in Cash

    Police from the Central Investigation Bureau have announced the arrest and charges of six people in relation to running an online gambling ring with tens of billions of baht in circulation, following police raids at a hotel on Koh Samui and other sites.


    Police commandos from the Central Investigation Bureau (CIB) searched seven locations they believed were linked to the website Mavinger.com. six people, including the website owner, were apprehended, Pol Lt Gen Torsak Sukwimol, the CIB chief, said on Saturday.


    The four men and two women were identified as website owner Kriattisak Charoensuk, 27, Surin Kaewsaengthong, 27, administrator, Jaruwan Phumphuang, 27, accountant, Nathaphon Khumsap, 28, who reportedly opened bank accounts for customers to transfer money, Chalita Pithaksakulkasem, 27, reportedly in charge of withdrawing money, and Thaweephong Suksuwannapon, 28, linked to withdrawing money and marketing affairs.


    They were arrested separately at a hotel in Koh Samui and other venues said Pol Lt Gen Sukwimol.


    50 million baht in cash was seized during the raid.


    Investigators spent more than three months looking into the operations of Mavinber.com. The website provided several types of gambling, including underground lottery betting, football and casino gambling.


    It reportedly had tens of billions of baht in circulation. The website owner and his accomplices allegedly used money acquired from the gambling operation to run other businesses and buy luxury cars, houses and condominium units.


    The CIB then sought court warrants to arrest seven people, six of whom were caught while one fled abroad, said Pol Lt Gen Sukwimol.


    The operation had been running since October 2018. Some members had been caught earlier in Chon Buri. Operators later changed the name of the website but it still used the old URL, said the CIB chief. The website ran on a server abroad, he added.


    All of those arrested were charged with colluding in running gambling and money laundering and are in police custody pending further legal action. The investigation is being extended to find others involved.
