Dubai police smashed a large gambling casino styled on the famous Las Vegas gambling halls, using seven undercover detectives in the operation that resulted in the arrest of many persons near Jebel Ali.
Police acted after receiving a tip-off that a casino is operating illegally in a car park rented by three European and Asian men at Jumeira Beach Residence (JBR) walk area and that nearly 30 modern machines similar to those in Las Vegas casinos are used in that place.
“We devised a careful plan to infiltrate that place as we learned that the owners pick their customers very carefully,” said Brigadier Khalil Ibrahim Al Mansoori, head of the detectives and criminal investigation department.
The Arabic language daily Emirat Alyoum said police managed to send seven undercover detectives to that casino and supplied them with Dh50,000.
