Honolulu Police Cracking Down on Illegal Gaming Rooms

(AP) — Authorities in Hawaiʻi have cracked down on illegal game room establishments found in both commercial districts and residential communities on Oahu this year. KHON-TV reported that the Honolulu Police Department has seized cash and more than a dozen gambling machines across two illegal game rooms in February – one in Waimanalo and another on Sand Island. The department said last month more than two-dozen gambling machines, cash and drugs were seized from another two locations in Kakaako, a neighborhood in Honolulu. Residents have raised concerns that the game rooms are contributing to other problems and safety concerns.
