California’s Bicycle Casino Raided In Federal Money Laundering Probe

U.S. government authorities raided the Bicycle Hotel and Casino in southern California on Tuesday as part of an ongoing criminal investigation.

Virginia Kice, a spokeswoman for U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) in Los Angeles, declined “to comment on the scope or nature of the investigation,” but said a search warrant was issued under seal in relation to an ongoing probe into one of California’s most prominent card clubs.

The raid of the 185-table Bicycle casino was executed by members of the Los Angeles High Intensity Financial Crime Area Task Force.

The task force includes U.S. ICE's Homeland Security Investigations unit; IRS Criminal Investigation; the California Department of Justice, Bureau of Gambling Control; and the U.S. attorney’s office.
