The Garden Grove Police Department Special Investigations Unit (SIU) had been conducting an ongoing investigation into a possible illegal gambling operation located in a home, in Garden Grove.

It was determined the house on the 10000 Block of McMichael Dr., was in fact an illegal gambling establishment and SWAT would be needed to safely execute a search warrant.

Yesterday, June 9, SIU served a warrant at the location with the assistance of the GGPPD K( Unit, GSU, CIU, and SWAT as well as the North and West County SWAT teams and the OCSD Bomb Squad.

A total of 12 gambling machine consoles and a loaded handgun was seized. 19 adults were also arrested for illegal gambling violations and/or outstanding arrest warrants.

  1. There’s a house on Gilbert and Oma around the corner from that location also up to no good.

  2. I got solution to save money for swat gambling raids – city legalize private gambling and the city charge an entertainment fee and a percentage of the purse then everybody wins ; the gamblers – they stay out of the court system and maybe win a little money and have fun ; and the city saves precious resources and fixed and variable expenses like, employee over time, vehicle maintenance and fuel expenses! What do you think?

  3. Sorry Larry, that makes too much sense. No can do. If our SWAT teams and bomb squads aren’t going around busting poker games, what else would there be to do?
