Task Force Active in the US to Uncover Illegal Gambling and Drug Operations

Task Force Active in the US to Uncover Illegal Gambling and Drug Operations A task force comprised of the FBI, Drug Enforcement Administration and the Department of Homeland Security has been on the hunt for illegal online gambling and drug offences in Oregon and a number of other states.

Thus far, they’ve apprehended eight Asian individuals on charges of illegal online gambling, money laundering and distributing marijuana throughout the country.

On Wednesday, the task force raided several locations in various states leading to the indictments of Kiet Anh Vo, Vinh Tuong Nguyen, Quan Anh Ho, Tan Quoc Tran, Duy Huynh, Nhat Luu, Hoa Nguyen and Thai Viet Huynh.

Vo is believed to have financed and managed the illegal sports betting business receiving bets via www.vnbets.net.

He is also accused of using the proceeds to operate a jointly owned café with Vinh Tuong Nguyen, which was used to accept illegal wagers.

All have entered a plea of not guilty and have been released by the courts until their trial dates.

The federal government will expect the forfeiture of any property related to or obtained by the proceeds of the illegal operation.
  • Marijuana and gambling, really?i wish law enforcement would focus on something that is hurting someone.my guess is that if the government was getting their cut of the $ there would be no problem,my guess ,lol ,both are legal in other areas of the country so of course its about the $.typical!
  • I guess while I'm all for people offering bets and wagers. I do like them to be under some sort of regulation. That way if the person goes rogue and decides not to pay up. I always like the idea of someone to complain to. Also these cafes seem to be popping up like wild fire. Honestly I hope the betting machines are random. Otherwise I'd be livid if I found out the machines were rigged to the extreme. While I keep hoping for some sort of legal online gaming across the US in the near future. I don't see it being something that happens immediately.
  • Of course they do. I wonder what other states they are investigating about such endeavors, ha ha ha.............. They don't mean regular gamblers too, do they........ Ooh, food for thought.
