An investigation into an illegal immigration smuggling ring resulted in nearly three dozen police officers being accused of stealing identities so they could place wagers online.

Antwerpen, Belgium police are the target of this shocking probe.

From Casino.org:

Law enforcement agents are prohibited from participating in all forms of gambling in Belgium and their national registration numbers appear on a blacklist distributed among licensed gambling sites, which are required to block them. But these gamble-happy cops from Antwerp found a neat way to circumvent the ban: identity fraud.

According to the country’s gambling commission, Antwerp’s finest were a high-rolling bunch, which suggested to commission head Peter Naessens that their interests were “not purely recreational.”

Antwerp Police Spokesman Sven Lommaert stated: ”Of course, we take this very seriously, but the investigation is still in its infancy. At the moment, we are assuming that dozens of people are involved, but there is a chance that the number is much smaller.”
