Police action shuts down two online gambling operations
West Valley City, Utah – the field of police action this week, when the law representatives conducted two raids which resulted in breaking of two online gambling rings, arrests of a dozen of people, and seizure of a number of equipment items. The action was welcomed by neighboring business owners, who were bothered by the fact that gambling operations were conducted next door.
The police still have not announced any details of the raids on Cyber City Café and Digital Connect, including names of those arrested. It was only specified that the action represents a result from a two-year investigation by local enforcement agencies.
It was explained by West Valley Police Sgt. Mike Powell: "We're hoping that tonight we can send out a clear message that this will not be tolerated." He added that those arrested in the raid for online gambling will face a punishment of up to six months in jail and a $1,000 fine.
