Major Gambling Bust In North Carolina Over The Weekend
Illegal gambling takes place in every town in America. There are poker games going on as this article is being written. While many of them are legal, others are being run by houses that are taking rakes of each hand that is played.
It is the illegal poker games that the authorities have decided to sniff out. They are making busts in all states and the latest bust took place over the weekend in North Carolina. Dozens of people were arrested in the sting operation.
Police were turned on through tips to an illegal gambling house on Festus Avenue back in March. They have since done surveillance on the house and on Friday evening the police served a search warrant.
They worked their way through the house seizing various items, some of which were gambling related and others were not. They took flat screen TV's, surveillance cameras, poker tables, poker chips, and other gambling paraphernalia.
They were also able to seize around $12,000 in cash. They charged thirty nine people with illegal gambling. Christian Patrick Lusardi, the owner of the house, was charged with illegal gambling and illegal alcohol sales. His mother was also charged in the bust.
