AURORA, Ontario (AP) - Police in Ontario say they busted a multimillion-dollar gambling operation when they raided an invitation-only Super Bowl event.
Six men have been arrested and face illegal gambling-related charges following the Sunday night raid at a packed hall in Markham, north of Toronto. More than 2,300 people were said to be there.
York Regional Police Supt. Paul Pedersen says almost $2.5 million in cash was seized after more than 400 officers executed search warrants across the Toronto area and as far away as London, Ontario.
He says those in the hall were allowed to leave without charges, except for the six. Police say they were profiting from the gambling operation.
Police say the investigation also shut down an offshore betting site called the Platinum Sports Book, which authorities allege was being run by the group.
