The Jakarta Post
Bogor Police have arrested four minibus drivers, identified as SB, TS, IA and AN, for allegedly gambling while leaving their vehicles on the road and causing a traffic jam in Bogor, West Java.
Bogor Police officer Adj. Sr. Comr. Rantau Isnur Eka said the drivers had parked their vehicles to wait for passengers, a practice called ngetem, and had caused a traffic jam in the area.
“I wanted to tell the drivers not to park their vans on the road, as it had caused a traffic jam on Jl. Sukasari. When I went over to their vans, they were not there,” Rantau said on Sunday, as reported by tribunnews.com.
He said he had eventually found the drivers at a shack in a nearby park.
“When we checked the shack, we found that the four drivers were playing cards for money,” he said. (ami)
