Couple suspected of selling illegal lottery


SIBU: A couple was arrested by the police on Saturday for suspected involvement in illegal lottery activities.

The police picked them up at a shipyard canteen in Rantau Panjang around noon following a tip-off. RM500 and two note books written with numbers were seized.

The police believe the couple — a husband in his 40s and wife in her 30s — operated the canteen and had been selling illegal lottery to shipyard workers who patronised their canteen.
