It has been reported in the San Antonio press that local police searched Richard Lee’s house. Richard is the recent WSOP winner of approximately $3million. The cause of the home raid is the evidence of an “extensive illegal Internet gambling operation”. No doubt, Lee appeared to be a target of long investigation.
“Our vice detectives have been conducting a comprehensive investigation where they believe proceeds from illegal gambling have bought a lot of items in this house,” Joe Rios told WOAI, a San Antonio Television Station. “Anytime we have that type of investigation that leads us to believe there’s illegal property in the house we have authority to seize it. We’re taking all the vehicles and all the property inside the house”. So, dozens of receipts for deposits on payouts from gambling proceeds were found in Lee’s house. As a result, a money-counting machine, five Lexus cars, multiple plasma-screen TV-sets, a huge amount of cash were seized. No one was arrested.
Certainly, this police operation is the largest one in San Antonio, and having found evidence, the police are able to move forward.
