Following intelligence that an illegal gambling den was operating in the district of Splott in Cardiff, Wales, six warrants were executed across the city on Wednesday, February 28.

The raid was undertaken by officers from Tarian Regional Organised Crime Unit alongside the Gambling Commission, HMRC and Cardiff City Council Licensing.

The den, located in the upstairs area of an industrial unit, was searched, all gambling paraphernalia – including six poker tables, a spinning prize wheel, poker coins and chips and multiple flatscreen televisions – was seized and removed, and two men were arrested on suspicion of money laundering and gambling act offences.

“We are committed to tackling illegal gambling activity across the UK and will continue working closely with law enforcement and partner agencies to achieve this,” said Kay Roberts, Gambling Commission executive director of operations.
