Kota Kinabalu: City Police Chief, ACP Ku Chin Wah, said police would be pulling up people who buy 4-D result sheets from street children in the city.
"We will arrest those who stop and buy the result sheets, just as we would arrest the children," he said.
"Those caught buying the result sheets face being fined RM150 under Section 10A(2) of the Road Transportation Act 1987," he pointed out.
He said the police have decided to take this approach following numerous complaints from the public.
Meanwhile, he said in an operation with City Hall, 13 street children aged between 16 and 18 were picked up at the Sinsuran, Kg Air and Segama areas on Tuesday.
Among those detained were a 16-year-old Bajau boy who was involved in illegal car washing activities and an 18-year-old woman illegal cigarette seller.
