Moscow police have shut down an illegal casino that was being operated on the premises of a former sugar refinery in central Moscow, the Interior Ministry said in an statement on Monday. The owners of the casino were making approximately 10 million rubles (around $300,000) a day, police said.
On Monday, some U.S. newspapers reported that police received a loud music complaint at a west Greenville residence early Sunday morning. A police patrol arrived at 1102 Jones Street at about 6:50 a.m. and found nearly 20 people in front of the house cleaning up Solo cups. Inside the house they found a video poker machine in one bedroom, nearly $270 in cash, and further evidence that the house was an illegal liquor establishment (shot house).
Cynthia Powell, 48, (the owner of the house) was arrested and charged with operating a video poker machine, possession of alcoholic beverages without a permit, selling alcohol without a permit, possession of marijuana and possession of drug paraphernalia, police said.
