Officers with Special Investigations Unit seize cash and electronics in illegal Pomona casino

On Thursday, the Pomona Police Department said officers with the Special Investigation Unit served a search warrant in the 200 block of North Rebecca Street and located a large-scale illegal gambling casino.

The department was tipped off when a property owner contacted police at around 12:45 pm after finding people inside of what was supposed to be a vacant commercial building.

Prior to police arriving on the scene, the subjects inside the property fled.

SIU officers seized evidence including electronics and currency.

“The Pomona Police Department has seen an increase in these illegal casinos opening in vacant buildings within the city limits. These illegal gambling casinos are the source of multiple calls for service, including batteries, robberies, and shootings,” the department’s release stated.
