FBI serves warrant at card room in El Cerrito

Posted: Updated:

SAN DIEGO (CNS) - Police and FBI agents raided homes and a College-area gambling establishment Wednesday and arrested several suspects as part of an ongoing organized crime-related investigation.
   
The agencies served a federal search warrant at Lucky Lady Casino and Card Room, 5526 El Cajon Blvd., about 6 a.m. and began gathering "items of evidence'' inside the business, FBI Special Agent Darrell Foxworth said.
   
Simultaneous searches were ongoing at multiple San Diego-area residences, where several people were taken into custody, according to Foxworth, who declined to disclose the number and locations of those enforcement actions or identify the arrestees.
   
The FBI spokesman said he also could not specify the nature of the investigation because the warrants had been sealed by a judge.
   
The U.S. Attorney's Office in San Diego was expected to release further information about the case in the near future, possibly Wednesday afternoon, according to Foxworth.
