    During the search warrant, two individuals were located in a back room of the business using a “machina” for gambling purposes.  The large gambling machine was seized along with illegal tobacco products and approximately $2,500 in cash related to illegal gambling at the business.

    The investigation is ongoing and anyone with information or questions contact Senior Detective Baltazar Tapia at the Port Hueneme Police Department (805) 986-6619 or email at [email protected]<mailto:[email protected]>
