Local Sports Gambling Crime Ring Busted

According to the Rockland District Attorney’s office, at least 14 people were arrested on Tuesday morning after an investigation led to the discovery of a sports gambling ring. District Attorney Thomas Zugibe stated that the investigation into organized crime took place over a 16-month period and those charged worked within the gambling ring, which appeared to have connections to and may have been providing money for organized crime groups on the East Coast. The arrested, aged 27 to 74, were from both Rockland and Westchester counties and were charged with felony counts of gambling offenses. The organized crime unit, as well as police from Rockland, Westchester, and New York State, were able to seize over three million dollars in cash and the defendants were released without bail.
