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.
