Two people arrested for a suspected illegal gambling room in Kapahulu
KAPAHULU, HI -
Two people were arrested for a suspected illegal gambling room in Kapahulu.
Business owners say they saw four police cars at the former location of Peggy's Picks just after 6 p.m. Thursday.
Two women were later seen being escorted out of the building.
Police records show two women in their 30s and 40s were taken into custody on suspicion of promoting gambling.
Neighboring businesses suspect gambling had been going on there for about five months.
"There was just a huge guy sitting out in front late at night after 12 and everybody was coming by some people knew it was a game room... I'd look and I'd go oh yah ok, it's a game room," Corrina Brillon said.
With Kapahulu Avenue widely used by traffic, people who work in the area say they were surprised to see what they believe was a gambling room being run.
