Police in Central China’s Hubei province used drones to take down a gambling ring in Wuhan, local media reports.
A total of twelve gang members and 49 suspected gamblers were caught, with more than CNY 50,000 (US$7,844) seized in the corresponding raid on May 16, according to the Wuhan Public Security Bureau.
