Operation “Gambling Suppression” Nets over 30 arrests, tens of thousands of dollars in U.S. currency, firearms, and over 200 illegal gambling machines in the City of #Lancaster.
Yesterday, Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department Lancaster Sheriff’s Station’s LAN-CAP Team (Lancaster Community Appreciation Project) completed a very successful operation. Several North Patrol Stations and investigators from the Major Crimes Bureau executed seven search warrants throughout the City of Lancaster.
The operation netted over thirty adult arrests and tens of thousands of dollars in U.S. currency were confiscated from the illegal establishments. Additionally, several illegal firearms were taken off the streets, and over 200 illegal gambling machines were seized from the location.
Illegal gambling is not a victimless crime; it is an organized crime that may increase the chance of more criminal traffic to a certain area or city to network with others and commit more crime.
If you believe there is an active illegal gambling house or establishment operating in your area, please call your local sheriff’s station.
