NARCOTICS/VICE OFFICERS DISRUPT GAMBLING OPERATION ON SOUTH SIDE

CCPD Narcotics/Vice Investigators shut down a significant gambling operation on Corpus Christi’s south side Wednesday evening. At approximately 9:00 pm, March 8, 2017, NVID Investigators served an evidentiary search warrant at a residence in the 5400 block of Sugar Creek Drive.  The search warrant was the culmination of an extensive long term investigation into illegal gambling at the residence involving “eight liner” slot machines.

Gambling Operation

During the course of the investigation, investigators gathered evidence that indicated that the operator and employees of the operation were paying out sizeable cash rewards to customers who played the machines, in violation of Texas gambling statutes.   Although the operator had taken significant precautions to disguise the illegal operation, which was being run from a home in a quiet residential neighborhood, NVID investigators were able to obtain enough evidence to obtain the evidentiary search warrant; the search warrant allowed investigators to search for and seize gambling equipment, ledgers, cash and other proceeds of illegal gambling activity.  Inside the residence, officers discovered and seized over 31 of the machines, along with over $5000 in cash. Sang Kim (6-6-75) was arrested and charged with Keeping a Gambling Place and Engaging in Organized Crime. Diana S. Griffith (11-2-70) was arrested and charged with Keeping a Gambling Place. The investigation is still ongoing.
