Special Agents Raid Illegal Gambling Operations In Sacramento Four arrests, 35 computers, thousands of dollars

ASA-DOJSpecial agents with the California Department of Justice (DOJ) Bureau of Gambling Control, working with Sacramento police, raided two Internet gambling sites in North Sacramento on July 10, 2013.

The two sites appeared to be Internet cafes but special agents and police say they discovered computerized slot machines used for illegal gambling.  They arrested three people at one site on drug-related charges and one person at the second site for a felony warrant.  They seized a total of 35 computers and several thousand dollars in cash.

"I'm sure the people who live and work near those sites are grateful to the officers and special agents who shut down those operations.  They tend to attract the wrong people," said Alan Barcelona, president of the California Statewide Law Enforcement Association (CSLEA).  CSLEA represents 7,000 law enforcement, public safety and consumer protection professionals who work for the state of California, including DOJ special agents.

The two sites were shut down.  The investigation into the operations continue with additional arrests expected.
