€13,000 confiscated after raid

POLICE CONFISCATED nearly €13,000 on Friday night after a raid on premises that had been converted into a casino in the Yermasoyia area of Limassol.
Police spokesman Andreas Angelides said members of the Limassol Crime Prevention Unit and Mobile Rapid Reaction Force (MMAD) raided the premises with a warrant, after receiving information that illegal gambling was taking place there.
Police had to break into the locked entrance which was protected by guards. Once inside, they identified 30 people who were gambling.
Police also had to break open a door on the first floor of the building to enter a room where they found another 17 people gambling.
The authorities found €12,830 in a till, which they confiscated along with tables, roulette wheels, cards, dice and other gambling paraphernalia.
Following further investigation, it transpired that five of the people at the makeshift gambling joint owed money to the state in pending fines. Police received €3,000 in relation to those outstanding fines.
During the search, police found two rolled cigarettes on one person, allegedly containing cannabis.
