Genesee Township Police raid underground gambling den
Genesee Township Police say they've flushed out an illegal gambling operation after raiding a local business. Investigators removed 50 gambling machines
from the store called ‘Computer Repair & Sales’. Officers raided the business after receiving a tip-off about the illegal activities. The state of Michigan only allows gambling at licensed businesses.
Larger than normal
John Mullaly, speaking on behalf of the Genesee Charter Township Police, revealed that they plan to file charges against all persons involved. “The owners operated a large scale gambling den, which is definitely one of the biggest we have come across so far. The majority of the illegal gambling business offer up to ten slot machines
,” Mullaly commented.
Two weeks in business
Police investigators interrogated two individuals, but nobody was arrested. Investigators also seized cash of $165,000, and gambling-related items, such as money boxes and computers. The illegal gambling venue
allegedly opened its doors about fifteen days ago. It remains unclear how much they made during that period. Gamblers had to purchase a phone card in order to play the slot games.
