<Anchor> At

a restaurant in downtown Ulsan, there was a report that a professional gambling board with large sums of money is being played every night.

A nearby resident reported to the police more than 100 times, but to no avail, UBC reporter Bae Yoon-ju covered it.

<Reporter> In the

center of a table surrounded by middle-aged men and women, piles of 1,000 won bills are piled up.

However, what you have in your hand is a bundle of 10,000 won, and your stake increases with each exchange of cards.

This is a restaurant tucked away in a downtown alleyway.

The reporters try to get in as a guest, but the owner of the restaurant blocks them.

[(Can I eat?) No. I can't now. Group guests say they have a step-meeting.]

Local residents

say that

they have been gathering every night, up to 10 people for over a year.

It is a professional gambling board that goes beyond friendship.

[Nearby merchant: My grandmother rents a house and sells alcohol for a seat. Among them, the woman pays (money) if it runs out. there are people watching Whether the police car is coming or not, just that (Look.)] One

impatient resident complains that he has reported to the police nearly 100 times so far.

[Neighboring residents: To the extent that they hit, hit people with chairs, and break tables. I've only reported it almost 100 times. (Even if the police come) Stop people fighting for 3 to 5 minutes (go.)]

The police and the competent ward office have booked several times for gambling and violating the Food Sanitation Act, and have also ordered business suspension, but to no avail.

[Regional district officer: There is only one thing that cuts off the sticker due to a nearby disturbance.

There is no way to do it all legally or by force.] There is no way to

be uprooted by illegal gambling that has penetrated downtown alleys and ridiculed by public authorities.
