Gwinnett County Police busted gambling operations in two homes in Duluth on Monday.
An anonymous tip led officers to the homes at 2650 Michael Circle and 3927 Old Norcross Road, according to Cpl. Jake Smith.
Mi Hui Yi was arrested and charged June 11 with keeping a gambling place, commercial gambling, and possession of gambling devices at the Michael Circle home.
Chong Suk Han was arrested at the Old Norcross Road home, where she was in charge, Smith said. She was charged with keeping a gambling place, commercial gambling, and possession of gambling devices.
Several other women were arrested at the second home including Sung Hee Choi, Young Suk Han, Shirly Kim and Mi Hyang Huh. Choi was charged with keeping a gambling place, commercial gambling, and possession of gambling devices. Young Suk Han, Kim and Huh were charged with commercial gambling.
From the first location, police officers seized four gambling machines (video poker, slots, etc.) and more than $15,000 cash, Smith reported. From the second house, officers seized six gambling machines and more than $3,000 cash, he said.
This was a women’s gambling “club,” Smith said. Men were not permitted to gamble at these locations.
