Three West Montgomery residents were arrested on Tuesday as part of an investigation into an illegal online gambling operation. The website was being run out of Costa Rica, but the people running the illegal operation were in the United States.

Justin Franciscotty and his wife Ana were both arrested at a home that was registered to Justin's sister in law, Stephanie Uselton. She was also arrested in the sting. They were all charged with second degree money laundering.

The charges came about after an investigation found that the trio were receiving large amounts of money through the U.S. Postal Service. Once inside the house, police found several envelopes that came from different parts of the country.

The operation was being run through an illegal website based in Costa Rica. "The domain name and setup was based in Costa Rica. It's like an offshore gambling operation, but you can't operate offshore from the U.S.," said Special Investigation Unit Sgt. David Womack.

Police confiscated pricey jewelry from the residence. They also took three computers that they are hoping will give them more leads into the case. One of the rooms in the house was set up with several different satellite feeds, in order to watch the games that were being bet on, according to police.

Receipts from the Ritz Carlton Cancun were found inside the house, and receipts from other jewelry that could not be located at the time of arrest. Others that were not home at the time of the arrests are expected to be arrested in the case.
