ODESSA - The Odessa Police Department is conducting an ongoing investigation regarding illegal gambling at the Seven Diamond Gameroom near Andrews Highway and 42nd Street. Three suspects have been detained and could possibly be facing misdemeanor or felony charges.
Public Information Officer, Steve LeSueur, with the Odessa Police Department said, "There were accusations brought to the Odessa Police Department that illegal gambling was taking place here in the game room, and as a result, enough probable cause was gathered to obtain a warrant. As a result, we are conducting an investigation."
Those detained include the owners of the establishment and other employees. Officials believe that there were guests inside of the Seven Diamond Gameroom as recently as Thursday morning.
"There were several people here when we made entry," LeSueur said.
The individuals who were running the operation could be facing major jail time.
