LEPHALALE — Another suspect who may be guilty of violating the Limpopo Gambling Act 3/2013 was arrested by Lephalale Police last week.
According to Warrant Officer Frans Mokoena, Lephalale SAPS spokesperson, a Bulgarian resident, Damyqnov Stoyan Viktorov, came to the police office to pay R1 000 each for two other suspects who were granted bail. A police officer saw that he met the two female suspects at a filling station near the police offices and was suspicious because he had heard that the suspect is also part of the illegal gambling crowd.
The police followed him and the two ladies to Lephalale Mall where he was confronted. WO Mokoena said they arrested him and found the key of a safe that was found in the gambling den. He was also charged for being in the country illegally, because he didn’t have a SA passport.
He was also arrested for breaking the Limpopo Gambling Act 3/2013 “for the possession of computer software that enables the downloading of credit won in a gambling game without a licence”.
According to WO Mokoena, he already appeared in Lephalale Magistrate’s Court but the investigation continues.
