Noisy mahjong gamblers caught

PRATO (Toscany) Italy - Four Chinese have been arrested by local police because of gambling with mahjong. They could easily be trapped since, because of the heat, they had left the windows of their apartment open.

The four, between 30 and 50 years old, were noted by passing police officers because of the noise they made. They were caught in the act. Police found an amount of 1,700 euros the Chinese had been gambling for.
