PEÑITAS—Twice in September, Peñitas officers received calls of suspicious activity. Both incidents ended up as cases of illegal gambling establishments, Police Chief Roel Bermea said.
“These are the first ones (gamerooms) we’ve seen here,” Bermea said.
In the first incident, a caller thought a house might be a stash house because of all the traffic. When officers showed up at the scene, they were given permission to enter and found 24 8-liner machines. Officers are still looking for the owner of the establishment.
