PHILADELPHIA, PA—State officials have announced the arrest of 17 people in a bookmaking, gambling and loan-sharking organization in Philadelphia and suburban Delaware County. State police and the attorney general's office say the group generated more than $1 million a month and had ties to Philadelphia organized crime.
Officials say the probe, "Operation Delco Nostra," began taking shape in February 2002, when a man arrested on bookmaking charges in Montgomery County began cooperating with state police and the FBI.
A grand jury heard testimony and received evidence for a year, from April 2007 until April 2008.
Officials say the operation involved an illegal casino in Folsom, where poker games and other gambling activity such as illegal betting on horse racing occurred.
