Police in the northern province of Ha Tinh on Tuesday (December 25) busted a gambling den disguised as a passenger bus, and arrested 12 people, news website VnExpress reported.

The operator, Le Anh Thong,32, and 11 other gamblers were caught red-handed when police raided a green, 45-seat bus parked on a quiet street in a local district.

Besides more than VND100 million (US$4,800) in cash, police seized nine cell phones, two guns and ten bullets, and a small packet that they suspect contains drugs.

Thong, who has been placed under arrest for allegedly gambling and organizing gambling, told police that he bought the bus and took out all the seats to set up a mobile gambling den.

The den was moved often to prevent local residents from getting suspicious, he added.
