Man, 74, and woman, 70, found organising illegal gambling activities for 5 others in Jurong unit

The police are investigating seven people, aged between 57 and 75, for their suspected involvement in illegal gambling activities.

Officers from Clementi Police Division had conducted an operation on Tuesday (Jan 25) at an apartment along Jurong East Street 32, which was suspected to house illegal gambling activities.

"Upon entry into the unit, a 74-year-old man and a 70-year-old woman were found to have allegedly organised illegal gambling activities for five other people who were found within the unit," police said.

Gambling-related paraphernalia, such as mahjong tables and mahjong tiles, were found and seized as case exhibits.

Investigations are ongoing against all seven individuals for offences under the Common Gaming Houses Act.

The police said they will continue to take a tough stance against illegal gambling activities, adding: "Those found engaging illicit activities will be dealt with in accordance with the law."
