.Brickfields deputy OCPD Supt Arjunaidi Mohd said the 21-year-old accountancy student, from a college in Kajang, was believed to have masterminded the operation with her boyfriend involving RM500,000 each time. The student was detained in a room on the top floor of a double-storey terrace house together with several betting equipment, he told reporters, here Monday.
The boyfriend's 54-year-old father was also held in the 10.45pm raid. The girl's boyfriend was not in the house at the time and is believed to be hiding. Arjunaidi said the syndicate was believed to have been operating since the World Cup started.
The syndicate members contacted people who wanted to bet through telephone or e-mail. Among the items seized at the house were RM8,350 cash, a list of betting numbers, a lap-top, CD-Rom, modem, and 16 payment receipts made through banks since June 13.
Meanwhile, police also detained a 52-year-old man at a house in Jalan Kuchai Lama last Saturday night while the man was watching a World Cup match. The man who worked at a shipping company, was believed to have been active in accepting bets since last November with bets amounting to RM1 million each time. "He was involved in horse racing as well as the World Cup betting," Arjunaidi said.
