Police were tipped off by neighbours that a house in Chiang Dao’s Ping Kong sub-district was being used to stage cockfights. Nearby residents complained that many people had been coming and going, making a lot of noise.

Police surrounded the house before raiding it, and arrested six men aged between 41 and 80 as they tried to escape. The suspects confessed to illegal gambling and will be prosecuted.
