FLAGSTAFF, Ariz. — An investigation into allegations of illegal gambling
has resulted in a raid at a Flagstaff business and two Arizona homes.
The Arizona Daily Sun reports law enforcement officials
served a search warrant at the Fourth Street business early Thursday. They also
searched homes in Phoenix and Parks.
Flagstaff police said investigators found hundreds of computers that were
allegedly used as unregulated gambling devices for online gambling. They also
seized about $14,000 in cash.
Sgt. Cory Runge said the people running the scheme were able to set very low
win ratios on the games they offered.
Investigators said they believe the ring may have been conducting illegal
gambling operations in multiple states.
So far, no suspects have been named and no criminal charges have been filed.
The investigation is ongoing.
