Garden Grove police seize 186 illegal gambling machines
GARDEN GROVE, Calif. (KABC) -- Garden Grove police seized close to 200 illegal gambling machines.
More than 110 officers fanned out Tuesday night in Garden Grove and Westminster to nab the machines from bars, coffee houses and pool halls.
They seized 186 machines and more than $145,000 in cash and arrested 23 people.
The devices appear to offer legal video games, but customers can switch them over to casino-style gambling.
Police said they are concerned about the games because they attract criminals to the area.
