North Sumatra Police have confiscated seven buildings owned by a man known as Jhoni, who is wanted for allegedly running an illegal online gambling ring based in the provincial capital of Medan. He is believed to have fled to Singapore. 

Police spokesperson Sr. Comr. Hadi Wahyudi said on Tuesday that officers suspected that the buildings had been used as underground gambling venues, which they believed saw between Rp 500 million and Rp 1 billion (US$66,628) in cash flow each day.

Hadi said the buildings in Medan were confiscated last week and that officers were continuing to scrutinize Jhoni’s assets for evidence that they were purchased with gambling profits.
