HIROSHIMA (TR) – Hiroshima Prefectural Police busted a baccarat parlor in Fukuyama City that masqueraded as a game center for providing illegal gambling, reports Nippon News Network (Nov. 16).

At 1:20 a.m. on Monday, officers raided parlor Paradise, located in the Matsuhamacho area, and arrested two male employees, including Yuta Sadahiro, 30, for accepting a commission on wagers placed on a baccarat table provided on the premises.

Police also arrested three male and female customers inside the parlor at the time of the raid on charges of illegal gambling.

Sadahiro has refused to comment on the charges.

In June of last year, Paradise received a license under the adult-entertainment law to operate a game center. A person connected to the establishment leaked information about the illegal business to law enforcement.

Police are now seeking to arrest the manager of the operation.
