NEW YORK SPORTSBOOKS BUSTED

Unconfirmed report that 32 prosecutions could stem from sportsbook raid


In an exclusive report from an unidentified source this week, the Gambling911 portal reveals that a major New York enforcement action by staff of the Queens District Attorney has netted 32 agents working with offshore sportsbooks.

One of those prosecuted had $300 000 confiscated in what was apparently a sting operation, details of which are expected to be released soon.

911 reports that law enforcement authorities obtained search warrants against the online gambling website concerned, which has not yet been identified, and were able to monitor agent activity including all bets placed and won via computer expert "code breaking".

The Queens DA's office was expected to announce the arrests and provide more information during a press conference Wednesday.

Wire taps were placed on most of the agents, tracing their movements between New York and Las Vegas. The group itself was based out of Hunts Point, The Bronx.

Servers for the offshore sportsbook's website were based out of Florida and Atlanta.

Law enforcement have confirmed that the bust of another offshore betting operation which dealt in credit led to the arrests of BetonSports CEO David Carruthers back in July 911 says. His company allegedly housed the defendants.

So in other words, he sold them out.
