Investigation and seizure of lottery rooms, etc. Police investigate lottery seller without detention

A local Nonghyup employee who stole 5 billion won from the company to finance sports betting was handed over to the prosecution.

Gyeonggi Gwangju Police Station announced on the 24th that it had sent a 30-year-old man to the prosecution on charges of embezzlement under the Act on the Aggravated Punishment of Specific Economic Crimes.

Person A is accused of embezzling about 5 billion won in company money by transferring public funds dozens of times to an account under someone else’s name in April, when he was in charge of depositing and disbursing funds at a local agricultural cooperative in Gwangju, Gyeonggi Province.

It was confirmed that he committed this crime to make up for the loss caused by Sports Toto, and it is said that most of the crimes were admitted during the police investigation.

The local Agricultural Cooperatives found out about the embezzlement of Mr. A through its own investigation and reported it to the police on the 14th.

A portion of the estimated 5 billion won stolen by A was transferred to the account of Mr. B, a lottery seller in Seoul, and the police believe that Mr. A purchased Sports Toto remotely after he remitted the company money to him.

The police have been conducting related investigations recently, including raiding the lottery room and home run by Mr. B.

The police are investigating whether there is any suspicion of aiding or encouraging Mr. A’s embezzlement by arresting Mr. B without detention.
