KULAI - Sixteen men were arrested and eight slot machines were seized in a raid at a family entertainment centre in Taman Puteri Wangsa, Ulu Tiram.

Johor Baru South OCPD Asst Comm Sulaiman Salleh said the men, aged between 20 and 50, were nabbed during the raid at Pusat Hiburan Keluarga Everyday Bonus Sdn Bhd in Puteri Mart at around 11.30pm on Monday.
