Liquor, gambling raids hit Bogor

BOGOR (JP): Bogor Police ran mass raids over the past week, confiscating 2,500 bottles of liquor, 52 video compact discs (VCDs) and hundreds of togel gambling coupons.

A popular method of gambling, judi buntut, togel, or toto gelap, is based on two, three or four numbers released every two or three days by dozens of gambling operators.

Bogor Police deputy chief Maj. Weri Sudjatmiko said on Friday that the raids were conducted in six separate locations in Anyer Market and Central and North Bogor.

As for the VCDs, police raided rental outlets in Cimahpar and Plaza Dua Jambu, which carry pornographic and pirated discs.

Meanwhile, Weri said two burglaries separately took place at Jl. Yudistira 1 in the Indraprasta housing complex and another also in the same complex at Jl. Bangbarung Raya No. 14 on Wednesday and Thursday, respectively.

Police managed to apprehend two of three alleged burglars in their hiding place in Cicurug, Sukabumi, and are looking for six armed gang members who burglarized the latter's house, Weri said. (21/edt)
