Arona police close “classic English pub” for illegal gambling

Arona Policía Local have confirmed a report in today’s Diario de Avisos that they have closed an illegal betting shop in the municipality. The shop took bets on horse races, and during the raid, some €2,000 was seized: police say that they think the business moves around €10,000 daily. Police say that the owner of the property had ignored repeated warnings because betting activity was a good sideline to his official business, which is a “classic English pub”.
