There has been gambling going on at this house for a long time on a nightly basis. I have friends in this neighborhood and the noise and traffic from this house has been a nuisance for well over a year. Besides that, I have heard several places around town that this was the spot to buy into a high stakes game plus other activities. It was only a matter of time before they got caught.

Sounds like they raided a poker game to me and poker IS NOT GAMBLING!! Its been proven to be a game of skill in many courts in this country. So WPD was this an underground casino or a poker game that amounted to a cash grab like the DOJs attack of online poker which was recently shown to be exactly that. WPD inquiring minds want to.know what “gambling” was SUPPOSEDLY going on?

Poker isnt gambling so long as the owner wasnt taking a cut/rake of the game then it doesnt qualify as a gambling establishment under the standards of federal law even. You can charge them with a noise disturbance maybe even a zoning violation but not gambling.
