The raid was in response to a tip-off from local residents, officials explained in their report.

The residents were concerned that people taking part in the gambling might cause trouble such as by committing thefts in the area to make up for money lost gambling.

All 18 arrested were taken to Thalang Police Station and charged accordingly, the report concluded.
