According to the police, this cockfighting venue is located next to the river and has existed for several years, mainly operating during the day. The organizers have many sophisticated tricks, vigilance… to deal with the functional forces.
Through reconnaissance work, the functional forces determined that this venue not only organized cockfighting but also organized gambling in the form of shaking money and fainting.
