    Details of a two-year investigation into a Bensalem man’s alleged connection to an illegal online gambling operation came to light Wednesday after police asked a judge to freeze the suspect’s bank account and prevent him from selling or leasing his home.

    Asa Alexander, 27, of Brister Road, hasn’t been charged with any crime. Court records obtained by the Courier Times show that police believe he runs the Web site You must register/login in order to see the link., an allegedly illegal betting site that allows members to gamble on domestic and overseas sports, horse races and casino games.

    Detectives served a search warrant on Alexander’s opulent Brister Road home last week and seized documents, $22,500 in cash and a cell phone they say are linked to the site.

    The long arm of the law reached from Arizona into Central America as the Maricopa County Sheriff's Office busted an internet gambling ring.

    ``Our deputies started this case here locally," said Sheriff Joe Arpaio. ``And we go to the four corners of the earth to develop investigations, especially when they pertain to Maricopa County."

    Arpaio said those operating the gambling ring ``are violating the law. These are serious violations, and it's our duty to bring them to justice."

    The investigation took three years and led to the indictments of 36 people, most from Arizona, but some from Central America, California and Nevada. Some had ties to the mob, Arpaio said. Four internet gambling sites were discovered.

    Gambling wasn't the only crime, the sheriff said.

    ``There's a lot of extortion involved, with loan sharks. If you (gamblers) don't pay, they make threats, people lose their homes, some even have broken families because of this operation."

    Millions of dollars were involved, according to Arpaio.

    ``We seized 8.5 million dollars. We hope to seize 50-million more in assets. The way you hit these people isn't just put them in jail. It's also to take their money, take their houses, take their cars, take everything away from them."

    Shallotte police seized almost $5,000 on Tuesday night from a business suspected of possessing a gambling machine.

    Shallotte Police Chief Rodney Gause said police served a warrant on Shallotte Business Center, located on Holden Beach Road, after receiving complaints and tips that gambling might be occurring at the business, which offers computer and internet use.

    Gause said the employee, Patricia Mary Westerman, who must appear in court, and the owner, Patrick Cowan, were both cooperative.

    Gause said the suspected gambling occurred on a machine similar to a computer, but he could not give more details because the machine and the business remain under investigation.
