Raid shutters illegal gambling house in Richmond home: RCMP
Police have busted an illegal gaming operation in Richmond, what investigators describe as “one piece of the larger organized crime puzzle” in the province.
A search warrant was issued at the start of December after an investigation by Richmond RCMP into a suspected gambling operation in a home in the 6000-block of Skaha Crescent.
The bust by the Richmond RCMP organized crime unit was assisted by the B.C. specialized anti-gang unit, Canada Border Services and a police dog squad.
Sixteen people in total were arrested, most of whom were actively gambling in the home. Two of them, a 45-year-old woman from Richmond and a 49-year-old man from Surrey, are alleged to have been caretakers of the gaming house.
Two others, a 34-year-old Richmond man and a 38-year-old Vancouver woman, were allegedly professional card dealers.
