DOJ Special Agents Investigate Suspected Illegal Activity In Sacramento Warehouse

ASA-DOJSACRAMENTO - When California Department of Justice (DOJ) special agents served a search warrant at a warehouse in South Sacramento on July 28, 2016, they discovered dozens of illegal gambling devices and an indoor marijuana grow operation.

They began investigating what was taking place at the warehouse in February after local law enforcement alerted them to a suspected gambling operation and the possibility of other illegal activity.  Neighbors also reported lots of pedestrian activity  at the warehouse and many cars during the evening.

Special agents seized 66 illegal gambling devices and more than 150 marijuana plants.

"Neighboring business and people who live nearby suffer when illegal activity is taking place," said California Statewide Law Enforcement Association (CSLEA) President Alan Barcelona.  "Illegal gambling attracts the wrong crowd and it's being done behind a closed curtain, so to speak."

The Sacramento Police and Sheriff's Departments assisted in the July 28th operation.  DOJ's investigation is currently on-going.
