Police have charged seven people with running illegal gambling houses as a result of a series of raids in Mississauga.


Culminating an investigation begun in December, the OPP’s Illegal Gambling Unit and Peel Regional Police busted two operations on Sunday and one on Monday, following a July 21 raid on another premises.


The illicit gaming houses, set up independently in industrial malls, were charging people fees to play Texas hold ’em and other games of chance, according to Det. Staff Sgt. Clint Hunter.
