San Jose, California – Police raid an illegal gambling den in the Alum Rock area

On Thursday the 28th of April, MERGE officers, who are the equivalent of SWAT officers, converged on a house in the Alum Rock area in San Jose. The house was the target of an illegal gambling operation raid in previous times, which made this the second raid on the same house for operating an illegal casino. Breaking a window to gain access to the house, police officers threw flash bang grenades and entered the house with guns drawn. During the raid, police arrested approximately 8 people, confiscated bags of cash and seized gambling equipment. Police considered the raid a high risk operation because they had reason to believe that there might have been weapons in the house.
