The Hanoi Police Department reported that a police raid was underway in both Hanoi and HCM City on December 3 to catch the said individuals red-handed at nine locations.
On scene, the police seized 12 cellphones, one piston, more than 100 bullets, more than 200 kilograms of explosives, two cars, and other evidence.
The gang is led by 43-year-old Le Van Thang and 35-year-old Nguyen Thanh Nam. Their operation has been active since 2021, with some VND1 billion worth of transactions each day, making the total sum of illegal money worth VND600 billion.
According to Thang, the gang’s operation has become busier during the World Cup 2022 tournament, which started on November 18 in Qatar.
According to the police, Thang was unemployed and had recently opened a business covering his illegal activities in gambling, betting, and lending large sums of money.
Thang and Nam created accounts on many betting websites overseas and handed them over to their fellows for management. The accounts were then delivered to users to make bets and loans.
The police is undertaking further investigation of the case.
