According to Daily News, the raid was led by local Chonburi provincial police along with tourist and immigration police.

Police say that suspicions were aroused after a large number of ‘tourists’ were seen going into rooms 421/114 and 421/117.

Authorities knocked on the doors, armed with a search warrant, and found the Chinese and evidence including computers, 200 smartphones and electronic accounts. Police found 14 men and 3 women taking bets in one room and another two in the other room.
