Hong Kong police arrested 115 men for illegally gambling on insect fights on Sunday in the same building that housed a cricket lovers’ association, a police spokesman said.
Police seized about 300 crickets and $1,025 in cash during the bust, said police spokesman T.K. Ng.
The alleged bug gamblers remained in custody Sunday, but weren’t immediately charged, Ng said. Illegal gambling carries a maximum penalty of $1,280 and three months’ imprisonment.
