Detectives of the ABC Unit are helping lead the way in cracking down on illegal gambling in North Carolina. The detectives underwent extensive training to learn about new court rulings against illegal sweepstakes businesses and arcades. These businesses are often hubs for other illegal activities and gun violence. The detectives put their knowledge to work, helping lead an operation to shut down a location in Charlotte, seizing several gambling machines and tens of thousands of dollars. They also delivered letters to other sweepstakes businesses, warning the owners about violations of North Carolina law. Want to help make Charlotte safer? Head to charlottepolicejobs.org.
