Raid nets over $15,000 at Casablanca Amusement Center
Another 8-Liner is closed down for business, this time on the city's north side. Thousands of dollars in cash are confiscated as a result of the gambling bust.
Almost sixteen-thousand dollars is what Laredo police confiscated from the maquinitas on the 2300 block of Endeavor Road. Casablanca Amusement is where officers say they investigated for weeks before allegedly catching employees there in the act of paying out in cash.
One hundred and six motherboards were also taken from this establishment. This man, 24-year-old Daniel Melchor was taken into custody on charges of gambling promotion.
Police tell us more arrests are still pending. This is the second 8-liner gambling bust in the past week.
