Los Angeles – Continuing his work to improve community quality of life and spotlighting his successful Neighborhood Prosecutor Program, City Attorney Mike Feuer announced today that 19 people have been charged in connection with an alleged illegal casino directly across the street from Sunland Park on the 8700 block of Foothill Boulevard. A number of those named have been previously charged and convicted with gambling-related violations.
"This wasn’t just some poker game among a few friends. We allege this was an illegal casino, right across the street from Sunland Recreation Center, where kids play," said Feuer. "Locations like we allege here can cause real problems for neighborhoods, be magnets for crime and flout public health orders tied to the pandemic."
